medicationFinding the therapeutic dose of a certain medication for mental distress can enable people to live meaningful and purposeful lives.

This half day course provides you with an overview of the different types of medications prescribed including: anti-psychotic medications, anti-depressants, anxiolytic medications and ‘mood stabilisers’.
Getting the best from any medication often involves asking the doctor the right questions. The second part of this course will highlight key things that you may wish to talk to the doctor about when considering taking or supporting someone to take medication of any sort. These may include the likelihood of experiencing side-effects, whether there may be withdrawal symptoms, what to do if a dose was missed and how long the medication might be prescribed for.

This is delivered by Oxleas NHS Trust.

This workshop is aimed at anyone suffering with mental health issues who could benefit from relaxation.

Suffering from depression and anxiety can leave you feeling isolated and out of control. Sound Therapy can be used as a tool for coping with anything such as low mood, stress and a number of different mental health issues. The application of therapeutic music is scientifically proven to calm the mind and restore balance within the body.

During this workshop there will be an explanation of Sound Therapy followed by a journey with sound lasting around 45 minutes. Participants will be sitting or laying comfortably on yoga mats whilst listening to a variety of calming instruments.
At the end of the session participants will be gently guided back by my voice followed by a short conversation about everyone’s experiences.

Tuesday 24th July and 21st August 11:00 -12:15 am We will ask for a donation of £2
