What courses do we run?

All the courses and workshops run at Wirral Education for Wellbeing focus on supporting you to understand more about your mental health and gain practical skills to maintain a healthy wellbeing. Our programme is influenced by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing which are steps (researched and developed by the New Economic Foundation) that are proven to improve mental wellbeing. The 5 Ways to Wellbeing are: Connect, Take Notice, Be Active, Learn and Give.
