The HEROINES training course is specially designed to address women with mental health issues and it provides a methodology to professionals on writing therapy for rural WWMI.
The core idea of HEROINES methodology seeks to make women with mental issues become models of overcoming, or Heroines, to inspire another women facing similar situations.
The GET INSPIRED stage of the course is focused on raising awareness for women about their rights, about gender equality and how to recognize harassment and gender violence. In this stage Role Models (women with successful overcoming stories) are use to discover and analyse gender issues, and also to inspire and motivate the participants.
The WRITE YOUR OWN STORY stage provides women with a tool to express their emotions by using writing and becoming the protagonist of their own story of overcoming.
HEROINES will empower rural women with mental challenges by fostering their key competences, making them aware about their rights, contributing to their recovery and making them visible through their writings, as New Heroines.
The training materials are currently under development. Once finalized, this page will contain a direct access to the training course.
