Mental Health Awareness Week – Free workshops

Posted on: 26 April 2018

“Wellbeing is enabling people to create the best version of themselves.”

Michelle Preston – Positive Psychologist, Wellbeing Coach and founder

Research shows that people who carry on learning through life report higher wellbeing and a greater ability to cope with stress.

The topic for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week* (14 – 20 May 2018) is Stress: Are we coping? As part of the week, Devon County Council’s adult education service, Learn Devon, will be running a series of FREE workshops, aimed at raising awareness of how learning can help beat stress.

The workshops are open to all. So why not come along, have some fun with your peers, learn something new and discover how learning can enrich your wellbeing.
