What is it?
The Living Well with a Long Term Condition Course is for people living with a long term physical health condition who would like to help themselves better manage their long term condition and wellbeing. The course is 5 sessions over 5 weeks, each session is 2.5 hours long. There are usually between 10-15 people who will attend.
Who is this suitable for?
This course is suitable for anyone who lives with a long term condition who is interested in taking a more active approach in the self-management of their condition. We know that living with a long term condition can be challenging and stressful at times. This may be because the health condition itself can be demanding to manage and/or the condition may be having a significant impact upon many different aspects of life including routine activities, mood, energy, sleep and relationships.
