eGRiST delivered a training course to members of the public at the SYDNI Centre, Leamington Spa, as part of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust’s Recovery and Wellbeing Academy.
The short course introduced people to the myGRaCE self-assessment tool and how they can use it to manage their mental health. myGRaCE allows users to answer simple, unambiguous questions about their mental health and wellbeing, and then provides analysis and feedback to help them understand how things are going. It then helps them to build a personalised, interactive action plan to make improvements.
Providing training courses to the public introduces new users to myGRaCE, but it also serves the local community by helping to improve mental health literacy and coping skills. This has been a valuable opportunity, both for eGRiST and local people.
