A free practical skills workshop for anyone with ongoing health conditions
What is an ongoing health condition?
Ongoing health conditions are lifelong. They are often called chronic health conditions.
• lung conditions
• heart conditions
• multiple sclerosis … and many more
They can cause pain, tiredness, lack of energy, and breathing & sleeping problems.
Depression and anxiety is common and many people worry about the future.
It can often be difficult to cope and do the things you enjoy.
Why attend a workshop?
In a “Better Health” workshop you will learn:
• how to manage your symptoms
• the benefits of healthy eating and physical activity
• how to best work with your doctor and healthcare team
• how to manage difficult emotions
• how to make daily tasks easier
• how to set reachable goals
• how to get more out of life
Every workshop is led by two trained Leaders who are Volunteers and Health Workers often living with a chronic health condition themselves.
We also welcome the carers and partners of people living with a chronic health condition.
Are you having trouble coping and doing things you used to find easy to do?
