Wirral Education for Wellbeing offers free courses and workshops to adults accessing Cwp’s secondary care mental health teams on the Wirral. It is 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 Education for Wellbeing service follows an adult education model and aims to deliver a curriculum which contains responsive recovery focused courses. All courses (where possible) have been co-produced and co-delivered by people who have lived experience, together with partnerships from staff within CWP and the local community.
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 courses
These courses explore the link between physical health and mental wellbeing. Physical wellbeing involves exercising, good nutrition, and making healthy lifestyle choices and these courses cover these topics.
Taking Back Contro
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.
In these courses, you can 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.
