Free courses to help deal with stress in Ceredigion

Image
Free courses are being held across Ceredigion to help people better understand and deal with common problems such as depression, anxiety, panic, poor sleep and low self confidence.  Stress Control is a group class run by the new Ceredigion Local Primary Mental Health Support Service, established in line with the Mental Health Measure (Wales), new legislation that came into force last year. The service works closely with 16 GP practices and a whole range of community services to cover issues from post-natal depression to everyday stress and pressures.
The courses are delivered by Nurses, Social Workers and Health Care Support Workers in various community locations across the county.
