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.
At Skills & Learning we recognise how important it is to look after yourself and following the success of our national Community Learning Mental Health Project we know that learning can improve your overall wellbeing.
With this in mind, Skills & Learning have developed a range of courses on offer across the county. Specialist teachers will help you recognise and develop strategies to cope with the stresses and strains we all experience in life within a relaxing setting. Some courses focus on helping you to explore what well being means to you whilst others offer more creative pursuits such as creative writing, gentle walks in beautiful surroundings, painting and drawing alongside wellbeing activities.
These courses will provide a safe place to meet new people and work individually or together to understand how mental ill-health can be recognised, addressed and supported by other professionals or organisations.
LivingWell courses are open to everyone over 19. You don’t need to be referred; you can simply contact us and enrol.
