PEOPLE are being urged to look out for their mental health just as much as their physical health this winter.

Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust’s MyWellbeing College is running online courses for people who suffer from anxiety or depression to help people manage their mental health.

Each course offers hour-long group meetings once a week for six weeks, supported by an interactive workbook.

Jayne Chapman, psycho-educational courses lead, said: “In these uncertain times, more and more people are facing change and feeling unsettled or unsure - worried about health, relationships, family, work or finances.

“If that means you’re having problems sleeping or you’re feeling low, we’d encourage you to seek help now rather than putting it off.

“There’s no shame in asking for help. If you can acknowledge you have a problem, then you can take steps to feel better.”

The Managing My Anxiety course runs from 10am tomorrow, while Managing MyDepression begins on October 27 at 5.30pm.

The courses are free and open to anyone in the district not currently undertaking other psychological therapies. To register, visit the MyWellbeing College or call 0300 555 5551.
