Wirral Education for Wellbeing
What is Wirral Education for Wellbeing?
Wirral Education for Wellbeing (WEWB) offers free courses and workshops to adults accessing Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Trust (CWP) secondary care mental health teams on the Wirral. We are primarily an educational service that looks to support students more widely in their mental health journey.
Wirral Education for Wellbeing is also open to family members and carers of individuals accessing CWP secondary care mental health teams on the Wirral.
The WEWB follows an adult education model and aims to deliver a curriculum which contains responsive recovery focused courses. All of our courses where possible have been co-produced and co-delivered by people who have lived experience together with partnerships from staff within Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) and our local community.
Our courses and workshops explained …
Self-Management courses - In these courses you will learn more about different mental health conditions and techniques or general lifestyle changes that can help you to manage the symptoms of mental health problems. The tools you will learn may also help you to prevent some problems from developing or getting worse.
Physical Wellbeing - These courses explore the link between physical health and mental wellbeing. Physical wellbeing involves exercising, good nutrition and of course making healthy lifestyle choices and the courses in this section cover these topics.
Taking Back Control - These courses aim to provide you with tools and techniques that help you to feel empowered in making decisions around your care and wellbeing. These courses cover areas such as confidence building and learning how to be (positively!) assertive around your needs.
Getting Involved - Find out about how you can get involved with your local Education for Wellbeing centre, other services within CWP in the local area and opportunities in the wider community.
Please note: All courses have been postponed because of Covid-19. Please keep an eye on this page for any updates.
