Mind in Cambridgeshire’s Wellbeing Service is proud to announce its new 6 week ‘Wellbeing Workshops’ launched at the beginning of February 2015.
The workshops are for anyone, regardless of whether they have a mental health problem, who would like an opportunity to learn how to better manage their wellbeing. Covering a range of topics, the workshops aim to help people cope with the ups and downs of life, increase their confidence, feel a part of their community, develop healthy support networks, improve their emotional and physical wellbeing and connect with others with similar experiences.
Recognising the fact that family and friends supporting someone with a mental health problem need to look after themselves too, there will also be a workshop called ‘I matter too’ starting April 2015.
In addition to the workshops, the Wellbeing Service is also offering a 10 week Level 1 Open College Network qualification in “Peer mentoring and empowerment”, enabling attendees to use their lived experience to help others and give something back. Please note: this course started on 26 January 2015 in Cambridge — the Service plans to run more courses in the future, so watch this space.
