HeadsUp Project, Enable East
HeadsUp provides support, advice and mentoring to people with common mental health problems to help them get back into the workplace after a period of unemployment. HeadsUp is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund. We understand that the fear of what might happen can stop us from making positive changes in our life. However, we believe that being in work or education can provide you with loads of amazing benefits such as a boost in self-confidence, purpose, an opportunity to make new friends and the chance to learn new skills. Participants work with a peer support worker (someone who’s had a similar experience and have found their way back to work) to improve the practical skills needed to find a job such as writing a great CV or practicing interview techniques. Participants explore the emotional obstacles that might be standing in the way of them finding a job such as anxiety, lack of self-confidence or negative thought patterns. Through a series of interactive sessions we’ll explore ways to boost confidence, take charge of wellbeing and learn tricks to increase personal resilience.
