This short course does not include training in setting up, or facilitating, a Paranoia Peer Support Group. The focus will be on looking at different ways of making sense of, and coping with paranoia and the distress related to beliefs.
The London Paranoia & Beliefs Project launched in February 2012, and is run by Mind in Camden in partnership with the National Paranoia Network. Mind in Camden is known for its previous success establishing a Londonwide network of groups for people who hear voices. Founded on an ethos of acceptance and validation, Hearing Voices Groups provide a safe space where members can share without fear of judgement, and where their experiences are understood as having personal meaning. The London Paranoia & Beliefs Project aims to develop a similar network of peer support groups for people experiencing paranoia or distress related to beliefs. There are now 12 such groups currently running in London – where beliefs can be explored, common ground discovered, and coping strategies shared.
£7 for individuals with lived experience of paranoia
£50 for individuals without lived experience of paranoia
