Protect your mental health - free cCBT for young people

We believe that prevention is better than a cure when it comes to anxiety and depression. That’s why we are offering young people in Warrington the chance to protect their future mental health.

Our free online course helps young people learn skills that could lead to better wellbeing.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, one in ten young people experience mental health problems. Seventy percent will not receive appropriate help at an early enough stage.

Our course, which is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) runs for eight weeks and is supported by our trained volunteers. Sessions will be held at our head office near Warrington town centre or, if appropriate, at home.

Rachel Munn, our service manager, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to come forward and get support for their present and future wellbeing.

"We think it is vital for young people to have the tools behind them so that they can deal with problems like stress, worry and mood swings as and when they occur. This programme will help them to understand their thoughts and behaviours, the influence they can have on how they feel and more importantly what they can do about it.

"Our main aim is prevention. If you go through a tough time in the future, maybe at uni or in a first job in a new town or dealing with a relationship break up, this course will give you some techniques to better deal with it."
To access the sessions, you must be aged 16-25 and registered with a Warrington GP.

We only have 50 places available and you need to sign up before the middle of February. If you think you would benefit from this course, or know someone who might, then please do get in touch.
