What opportunities will this course give me?

Everyone feels anxious from time to time and this is completely normal. Sometimes, anxious feelings and thoughts can be overwhelming and affect our day to day lives, making it difficult to function.

There are many different triggers for anxiety, from both internal and external factors, such as health, social, OCD, panic attacks, and generalised anxiety.

This FREE anxiety workshop will help you learn more about anxiety and how to manage your feelings.

Please take a look at our other free wellbeing courses running later in the year which form part of our Community Learning Programme.
