This year's World Mental Health Day on Thursday 10 October has a theme of suicide prevention.

Yvonne McPartland, Deputy Head of the Staff Counselling Centre, will be delivering a session on suicide prevention for staff in Cambridge. The shocking reality is that suicide is the most common cause of death in men aged under 50 and the suicide rate is currently increasing after many years of decline. This equates to more than 6,000 deaths by suicide annually in the UK and Ireland.

The session is designed to give staff the confidence to challenge the taboo around suicide that makes it such a difficult subject to broach, with colleagues, family members, friends and even total strangers: what is it OK to say, what should I be looking for and what should I do next? The session will increase awareness around suicide, dispel some myths and share some lessons from experience at the Staff Counselling Centre. It will also remind staff what the centre can offer them. The message is that having a conversation could really save a life.

Voice Workshop 4 new Tue 4 May 2021   12:30 Finished

This series of four voice workshops, led by Professor Helen Odell-Miller OBE from Anglia Ruskin University, will focus upon wellbeing through vocal exercises and singing, which will be fun, relaxing and non-demanding. No prior musical knowledge or singing experience is needed and sessions will be accessible for all, whether you are a seasoned singer, or new to it. The workshops aim to improve motivation and the ability to concentrate, relax and connect. In addition participants will have time to focus upon their wellbeing and achieving their full potential.

Research shows that using the voice creatively, can motivate and enable our wellbeing and functioning, particularly when recovering from illness. The workshops will facilitate expression, social interaction, intellectual stimulation, fun and connection, through virtual vocal interaction, including movement.

What to expect The four stand-alone workshops across four weeks will include relaxation exercises, vocal warm-ups, vocal exercises and small group work in breakout rooms which, for those interested, could also include song writing.

Participants can keep their microphone off so no one can hear you; equally you can interact with others using your voice with the microphone on at certain points in the workshops if you prefer.

Limited places Due to the nature of the sessions, places on the Voice Workshops will be limited, with a waiting list in operation. If you have a place, please make every effort to attend, or let the EDI Team know if for any reason you will be unable to use your place so it can be offered to someone else in good time.

The facilitator Professor Helen Odell-Miller OBE is a Music Therapist and Director of the Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research at Anglia Ruskin University.

Joining instructions will be provided on your booking confirmation email.

Problem Solving in Relationships new Thu 29 Apr 2021   12:00 Finished

Problem Solving in Relationships

A brief introduction to the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions approach

When someone isn’t doing what they ‘should’, it causes difficulties in relationships at work and at home - and even (perhaps particularly) in our relationship to ourselves.

How much energy do we expend trying in vain to get others to meet our expectations, or trying to meet our own?

In this brief introduction to the work of psychologist Ross Greene, author of The Explosive Child and Raising Human Beings, we will look at ways to step outside of power struggles, accommodate our own and others’ lagging skills, and solve problems with creativity, pragmatism, and compassion.

Perfectionism and Impostor Syndrome new Thu 6 May 2021   12:00 Finished

Offering a brief overview of the factors that contribute to and perpetuate attitudes of perfectionism and impostor syndrome, this workshop will lead you through reflective exercises and introduce you to resources to help reshape your thinking around your capabilities, your potential, and your place in the world.
