Clients and staff in Action Mental Health New Horizons were busy this week, showcasing the Working it Out project to visiting funders to the Antrim facility. The Working it Out project works with individuals who are recovering from mental ill health and progressing towards further education, training or employment.
Part-funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014-2020, the project provides training in personal development, vocational skills and employability. Welcoming Fiona White, Managing Authority for the European Social Fund to their facilities in Antrim, Service Manager John Davis led visitors through an IT session, an employability workshop and observed younger people taking part in the Evolve programme which aims to develop their confidence and self-esteem.
Specialist staff deliver accredited training and work with individuals to develop goals, action plans and support work based training placements to assist in their progression and enhance social inclusion.
