Changing Minds Workshops

8 January 2018

People are being invited to sign up for a series of free ‘life changing’ workshops in the New Year to help them improve their mental health and wellbeing.

The workshops will both take place weekly on Mondays in Scarborough starting on Monday 8th January with one focussing on mental health awareness and the other on behaviour and communication.

The five-week Mental Health Awareness course will run for two hours from 9.30am to 11.30am and will cover a range of topics including mental health awareness and wellbeing, confidence building, anxiety management, recovery and resilience and managing worry and stress.

The second programme – Behaviour Change and Communication – will take place over four afternoon sessions between 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

These will focus on anger management, assertive communication and advocacy, managing conflict and building networks and relationships.

The workshops will be delivered by Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind’s in house trainer Natalie Clark and are being funded by the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

People can attend one or both courses and once complete they can join a short peer support programme which will continue to explore some of the themes covered.
