Teaching and sharing wellbeing practises, Unlock YOU also offers people the opportunity to engage with others experiencing similar difficulties.
Participants will build healthy self-support strategies throughout the course, learning new methods of managing any negative thoughts and feelings.
The programme will feature a mixture of interesting and lively learning sessions involving self-support strategies with topical discussions and activities.
There will also be a great range of self-care practices to choose from - putting participants on their own wellbeing journeys.
‘Unlock YOU’ is delivered over four days - usually one day a week - from 9.30am to 2.30pm with plenty of breaks along the way.
The programme is free to anyone living in the Central Bedfordshire and Bedford borough.
