About this free course

Over the six weeks of the course, you will work with trained facilitators to build your confidence and learn ways to help you better manage your long-term condition, including mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.

The programme helps you to focus on you as a person, and not as a long-term condition. It helps you to discover new strengths and rediscover old ones to keep yourself well. It also aims to boost your self-confidence and resilience, to help you cope better emotionally, psychologically and practically with your condition. This course is therapeutic, not therapy.

“Opening up to strangers has been a challenge for me but I am glad that I built up the courage to do so and it was rewarding, in a sense of being listened to, being understood and not judged.”

“I have grown in confidence, hope and my life has a little light back and it can only get stronger and brighter as time goes on. Few things I still need to achieve and work on… but taking each day as it comes and I will not give up trying.”
