LivingWell

At Skills & Learning we recognise that many people experience mental ill health at some point in their lives. Mild depression, anxiety and low mood can often have a negative effect on our own lives as well as the lives of family, friends and work colleagues.

With this in mind, Skills & Learning have developed LivingWell Hubs in key locations across the county. The Hubs run weekly and attendance is completely FREE of charge.
