This course will run for 1 day per week over 4 weeks and will help participants understand mental health and wellbeing.   Participants will gain an understanding of stress, anxiety, and panic attacks and the impact of these on mental and physical health.

Sessions will look at identifying stresses and anxieties and how the body responds to these including the physical and behavioural changes that happen when we are exposed to stress.  This will include the impact of life choices such as diet in coping with stress and anxiety.

In each session participants will focus on mindfulness, learning new ways of relaxing in different situations and how to build personal resilience to overcome stresses and anxiety.

Guided relaxations sessions will be used to support relaxation time at the end of each session building to a complete relaxation toolkit by the time the course is completed.
