Free course to tackle stress being held tomorrow in Rotherham

A HEALTH trust is urging people experiencing stress to sign up for one of their free courses.

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Team, run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s (RDaSH), holds a series of stress control courses throughout the year.

James Bell, of RDaSH's IAPT Team in Rotherham, said one in six people would experience stress or anxiety during their lives — but people are still afraid to admit they need help.

“Our free six-week stress control group teaches people to understand the triggers of their stress and anxiety while giving them the support and self-help techniques to be able to manage it,” Mr Bell added.

“We also provide an information pack and activities for people to work through in their own time.”

The next course will be taking place from 10am to noon on Wednesday, May 1, from at The Unity Centre on St Leonards Road. 

Booking is required in advance on 01709 447755.

The Rotherham IAPT service is aimed at people aged 18 and over who are experiencing common mental health problems, some of which include depression, anxiety and stress, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder, bereavement and mild eating disorders.
