What are Self Management Programmes?
Self management programmes (SMPs) are available for adults living 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.
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 at The Carlisle Centre, Stourbridge, DY8 1SP. 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.
