This course is part of a Government funded project called Self Health – a national research project designed to measure the impact of adult education courses on mental health and wellbeing. It is for anyone with mild to moderate mental health issues.
This course aims to provide an informative and practical introduction to digital photography for amateurs and complete beginners. You will learn to locate and apply the creative settings available on your camera equipment to enable you to take better photographs. You will also experiment with different kinds of photography, how the camera can be used to interact with people and using photography for wellbeing and mindfulness. Learners will require some form of digital camera, whether it’s a DSLR camera, compact digital camera or a camera phone with advanced settings.
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
