  •     Arthritis
  •     Back pain
  •     Fibromyalgia

You do not have to be referred by your doctor to attend this course.

What will I get from the course?

The course will teach you tools to help you handle your emotions and tackle difficulties you might be facing now, or in the future. These might be directly related to your illness or condition, or could be other challenges entirely. The great thing about these techniques is that you can apply them across all areas of your life.

What will I learn on the course?

Building a Healthy Future is a course aimed at improving people’s resilience, which is their ability to cope with life’s challenges, now and in the future. You’ll learn different stress and mood management skills, ways to better handle fears and worries, relaxation techniques, and get help to make positive plans for the future.

Courses are interactive, engaging and fun.

Course costs

Courses are free and take place over six sessions for two hours a week. You are expected to commit to attending all, or most of the sessions. Please note that you MUST have a physical condition (it may be undiagnosed though), to be eligible for this course, and live within Greater Manchester.
