Evening Anxiety & Depression Self Management programme @ Henry Court Dudley

Our first ever evening anxiety and depression Self Management Programme starts on the 15th of January at Henry Court, Dudley in  partnership with Nehemiah UCHA. Read on to find out more and how to book a place.

Self management programmes (SMPs) are available for adults living within the Dudley area with a long-term health condition, anxiety and/or depression, or for those in a caring role. SMPs aim to improve your quality of life by giving you confidence, skills and information to help manage your long-term condition or caring role better on a daily basis.

Please note that in order to be able to take part in a Self Management Programme you must live within the Dudley area and/or have a Dudley based GP. 

The programmes are FREE and run for 2.5 hours, once a week for six weeks.

Dudley Mind’s Self Management Programmes run all year round. Each course takes place once a week, for 6 weeks and is tutored by trained volunteers who themselves are living with a long term health condition.

See what two of our Self Management Programme tutors have to say about the programme in this shot video.

Our daytime courses usually run on a Tuesday or a Wednesday between 10:30am – 1:00pm in Stourbridge.

Try Tai Chi at Food for Thought

Weekly on a Thursday evening
Starting on Thursday 1st of March – Thursday 19th April

T’ai Chi Chuan (Taiji quan) is an ancient Chinese martial art which is practised
throughout the world. In recent times it has become less known for its martial
prowess and more as a gentle exercise for promoting good physical and
mental health.

Our instructor, Craig Swinnerton, is a Senior Instructor with Zhong Dao, an
Advanced Instructor with the T’ai Chi Union for Great Britain (TCUGB) and an
authorised Instructor with British Council for Chinese Martial Arts (BCCMA).

The course will run for 8 weeks from the 1st March, on Thursdays at 7pm and is
designed to introduce you to the basics of Tai Chi and promote wellbeing.
The course is free of charge for 8 weeks*

(*After 8 weeks the class may continue (depending on demand) on a fee paying basis – or
you may wish to join one of Craig’s classes throughout the area.)

For further details please contact Ade on 07852 766023 or Craig on 07835 150905
