Wellbeing College: A new term and a new prospectus!

The North Staffordshire Wellbeing College is about to launch for its spring term, with the first workshop taking place this week on 20 January 2023. The College has built on the courses and partners that it was able to offer last term and there is a range of new topics and workshops being delivered across the region.

This term, which runs until March, will work with more partners and deliver more workshops than the previous term. The workshops will focus on various themes such as:

  • Connect, adjust, include: Living with a learning disability
  • Solution Focused Recovery and Substance Misuse
  • An exploration into food, mood and body image
  • Expressive writing
  • Think Employment
  • And many more!

Jayne Simner, Recovery and Experience Lead, has shared her views of the upcoming term and what she hopes it will bring:

“Building on the success of our first term, we’re really excited to bring you 8 new coproduced workshops and some old favourites. I would encourage anyone to book onto a workshop for learning, development or fun. We’ve also tried to extend our venues for workshops this term so that we can bring the college closer to your community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our community partners for their ongoing support this term.”

The Wellbeing College is also working with a new and updated collection of partners, some of which have co-produced content for workshops and others who are acting as venues for the sessions. The new partners for this term include:

  • Green Door
  • The University of Keele
  • The Royal Literary Fund
  • The Veteran’s Support Network
  • Rethink Mental Illness
  • Brighter Futures
  • Staffordshire Fire and Rescue
