Workshops

Self-management and self-care are crucial skills people with either a physical or mental condition or a Carer need.

On average, people living with a health condition spend just 4 hours per year with their health care team; the rest of the time they are managing day-to-day life with that condition on their own – or self-managing.

MyHealth is an education and empowerment programme offering advice and workshops to people to help empower them to really take control of their health by giving them the latest knowledge. All our workshops are facilitated by a health professional in a group setting both online and face to face.

We believe people with long-term conditions should feel understood, empowered and supported. We focus on the person and not the health condition. By taking this approach a persons’ support is more co-ordinated and appropriate.
