DURING Mental Health Awareness Week, ACL Essex is offering free, online mental health and wellbeing courses.

Split into two sessions over two weeks, the courses will include managing anxiety, goal setting for wellbeing, decluttering for wellbeing and managing change in life and work.1 Courses start on 13, 14 and 15 May, with the second sessions on 20, 21 and 22 May.

Over 300,000 people in the UK entered NHS services for talking therapies between October and December, 2023. This was up from just over 55,000 people in July to September of the same year.2

Lisa Jarentowski, Principal, ACL Essex said: “Many people struggle with their mental health, and you don’t have to suffer alone. Our mental health and wellbeing has an impact on everything we do; it can determine our next steps in life. Reach out and come along to one of our courses with our friendly tutors. They are either qualified practitioners within mental health services or have lived experience with mental health. We’re here to support you to look after your mental health and wellbeing.”

Many learners have already benefitted from mental health and wellbeing courses at ACL Essex.

One learner, Debbie, said: “I have enjoyed this course very much. It’s been interesting and has made me feel more determined and my confidence has grown now more than ever before.”

Another learner, Brenda, feels that she has completed the courses at the right time. She said: “Thanks to Alison and Tamara (the tutors), I am slowly but surely changing my lifestyle and making my house into a home. In particular, I have personally benefitted with the use of language that both tutors have given me to be more self-confident. I am so very happy to be part of ACL as there is something for everyone.”

The mental health and wellbeing courses will each last for two weeks. Sessions start on 13, 14 and 15 May. To find out more about these courses, and to sign up, visit www.aclessex.com/wellbeing.
