Who is the course for?

The course is for people aged 18+ who live in Gateshead, with mild to moderate mental health problems, diagnosed or not.  The course is for those who want to learn ways to move forward. The expectation is that people will attend the vast majority of the sessions offered.

Topics covered on the course will include:

  • Understanding the brain
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Coping with anxiety
  • Coping with depression
  • Building resilience
  • Addictive behaviours
  • Coping with feelings
  • Managing negative moods

When and where are the groups?

The groups will run on Friday mornings, beginning 7th July 2017, and they will take place at our Wellbeing Centre in Bensham, Gateshead.
