Evening Self Management Programmes at Henry Court

 

Are you looking for help to better manage your anxiety and/or depression, but don’t have the time during the day due to work or other commitments to attend our Self Management Programme in Stourbridge? Dudley Mind have now teamed up with Nehemiah UCHA to provide evening Self Management Programmes to people who are unable to take part in them during the day. 

We currently run our drop in service, Keeping it Together, at Henry Court on a Monday and Thursday afternoon for anyone currently experiencing mental health difficulties to go along to for help and support. Due to the success of Keeping it Together, Nehemiah UCHA have kindly offered us the use of Henry Court on a Monday evening in order for us to provide evening Self Management Programmes.

Starting on Monday the 15th of January 2018, we will be running our first ever evening Self Management Programme at Henry Court in Dudley Town Centre from 6:00pm – 8:30pm. 

If you would like to know more about the Self Management Programme and how to book a place, please see the details below.

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. 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.

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