Community Safety Partnership launches new mental health workshops

blaby district community safety partnershipWorkshops to help those dealing with depression and managing anxiety are launching in Blaby District and Hinckley & Bosworth this February.

Running for six weeks, the courses will include topics such as wellness and recovery, confidence building, art and craft, relaxation, and hypnotherapy.

They are the result of a joint project between the Blaby and Hinckley & Bosworth Community Safety Partnership and a social enterprise company called Inspired, with funding provided by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Councillor Sheila Scott, Chair of the Community Safety Partnership, said:

“One in four people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year, with mixed anxiety and depression the most common mental disorder in Britain.

“Providing services to help and support those dealing with such issues is extremely important and I hope those wishing to speak and find out about help available will get in touch and sign up to these workshops.”

The Managing Anxiety Courses start from Tuesday 4 February and the Dealing with Depression Courses start from Wednesday 5 February, both taking place at Lakeside in Grove Park.

Each workshop will last for two hours, transport (if required) and refreshments will be provided and there will be the chance to ask questions, learn new skills and gain peer support on a weekly basis.
