New to computing and IT? Then this course is for you. Learn computer basics including how to use a mouse and keyboard, word processing, organising files and folders, searching the internet and sending and receiving email. Suitable for complete beginners.
Who Can Attend?
The project is open to anyone aged 19 or over who has mild to moderate mental health challenges such as finding it hard to go out, not sleeping, worrying, feeling stressed, anxious, sad or low. You will be asked to complete a self-assessment of your mental health to see if you meet the criteria to be involved in the project. People can only attend one Self Health course so that as many people as possible can take part in the research project and provide us with their data. If you have already completed a Self Health course between September 2015 and April 2017 you will not be able to attend another long course but you can attend a Workshop for Returning Learners
