Mental health charity launches new service

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is launching a new service to support people aged 18-65 with long-term health conditions after evidence showed people with problems such as asthma, diabetes or epilepsy are more likely to experience problems with their mental health.

Will Adam, service manager at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said: “How you feel matters. Whether you’re feeling stressed, sad or frustrated, our groups will bring you effective tools to help you take control of your life. The sessions have been designed together by people living with a long-term health conditions, and people working in mental health. The aim is to share challenges and opportunities so other people can benefit from this learning and experience.

“The team worked to create a six session course exploring how our health and happiness are inextricably linked. The course is filled with friendly lessons and top tips to help us bounce forward in tough times.”

The course is a combination of individual and group learning running for 6x 2 hour sessions on a weekly basis. The first sessions start in Goole from 10th August, and there will be further sessions in Beverley at a later date. For more information, or to sign up, please contact Hull and East Yorkshire Mind on 01482 240200 or info@heymind.org.uk

Mr Adam said: “We are looking for people who would like to sign up to share experiences of being diagnosed and living with a long term health condition to help other people cope with their diagnosis and along the way learn to be the best version of you.”
