Time to Take Care

 

Winter can be a time our mental health suffers. With the nights drawing in and temperatures dropping, not only are we less likely to prioritise self-care, some of us suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder.

For our Winter Wellbeing campaign we’ve put together a programme of workshops and events to help you feel rested, resilient and revitalised this winter.

 

All of the Winter Wellbeing workshops and events are free, however, we invite you to make a donation when you book on Eventbrite if you can (suggested amount of £10), to help us continue to support our local community. As a result of the Covid-19 crisis, there will be a lot more people who are struggling with their mental health this Christmas. If you would like to make a general donation click here.

We thank you in advance for supporting our work.
