The Pocket Advocate is a personalised, pocket sized, portable guide designed to empower a person's ability to communicate, manage and recover from mental distress. It shows clearly that with the right intervention the cycles of crisis and relapse can be prevented; that a person has the power to take responsibility for the progression of their symptoms, and become respected as an equal voice in the care they receive.
This core product has been adapted for people in a range of environments including education and the workplace.
The facilitation manual walks you through The Pocket Advocate step by step, as someone who wants to explore their own mental health or facilitate another person on that journey.
The Pocket Advocate is a unique model that combines a variety of prompts, exercises and games that can be adjusted to each person’s needs. The facilitation manual can be used as a standalone product or in combination with The Pocket Advocate booklet.
Our workshops offer a pre-emptive approach that support delegates to manage their mental health and stress. Through a combination of stress management techniques, problem solving and personalised plans, delegates will learn what ‘triggers’ are and how best to respond to them when they inevitably come.
Through dynamic group work, discussion and play the group will explore what triggers stress, the signs they notice in themselves when they have been triggered, and the actions they can take, to take care. Delegates will create the self-directed tool The Pocket Advocate, that can be used to communicate the challenges they face and explore the best way to access support.
