Chair and Share groups are the advanced version of Talk for Health Cafés. Groups are chaired by Psychotherapist-trained peer facilitators. You can come to as many or few as you like and there is time for everyone to share.

Advanced Learning Groups (ALGs) are themed trainings run by professional trainers, facilitators or therapists.  We have run ALGs on Therapeutic writing, Intentional Peer Support , Different ways of thinking about Mental Health,  and Recovering from Trauma.

Train the Chair is our one-day training to become a Group Chair. These take place every three months. After completing Train the Chair, you’ll be able to facilitate Chair & Share groups as a volunteer.

Train the Trainer is for those who want to become a sessional, paid trainer and deliver the Talk for Health Core Training or facilitate Talk for Health Cafés. We run Train the Trainer every two years. Look out for the next opportunity to join in 2022!
