PEOPLE suffering stress and anxiety are being reminded that help is available from health services.
The Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust is offering six weeks of free stress control classes.
The offer comes just in time for national Time to Talk Day on Thursday, February 1, which aims to get everyone talking about mental health.
Class organiser James Bell, of RDaSH, said: “With one in six people experiencing stress or anxiety at some point during their lives, we are reminding residents that support is available.
“Our stress control course aims to give people a better understanding of the triggers of their stress and anxiety while providing support and self-help techniques to be able to manage the condition.
“We also provide and information pack and activities for them to work through in their own time to improve their wellbeing.”
The classes are held in the evenings and during the day in locations in the town centre.
They are open to anyone who is over 18 and registered with a Rotherham GP practice.
They are not suitable for people with alcohol or drug issues, or people with thoughts of self-harm.
Anyone interested can self-refer by ringing 01709 447755, or speak to their GP or health professional.
We want to continue holding local authorities to account, attending court and council meetings, as well as providing breaking news, competitions and offers – but it costs money.
