I CAN

I CAN is our new approach to improving the mental health and wellbeing of people across North Wales.

It is rooted in local communities and led by people with lived experience of mental health problems, people working and volunteering in mental health services and those involved in local mental health charities.

Through I CAN we aim to:

  • Give a voice to people with lived experience of mental health problems
  • Shift the focus of care to prevention and early intervention; ensuring people receive the right support in the right place at the right time
  • Empower people to take control of managing their mental health and wellbeing so they can flourish
  • Encourage open and informed conversations about mental health in order to tackle the stigma which can prevent people seeking support

To achieve this, we have introduced new I CAN mental health support, an I CAN Work employment programme, free I CAN Mental Health Awareness Training, and a range of I CAN volunteer opportunities.
