Lancashire Recovery College: Learn new skills to support your health and wellbeing

Free courses are being run for people in Lancashire to help them keep, stay and live well as part of an exciting new project that is being run by Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust along with their partners.

The courses, which are being run by the Lancashire Recovery College, cover a range of topics that also include sessions on artistic meditation, stress, how to relax and dealing with gambling. One of the courses, Wild Wellbeing, will be held at the picturesque Brockholes Nature Reserve with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust to help people connect with nature.

The courses are free and available to anyone over the age of 18 with initial venues in Chorley, Preston and South Ribble. Courses will also be run in East Lancashire and then eventually cover the whole of Lancashire.

The Recovery College courses are a safe and friendly space for people to learn and share, if they wish, without feeling judged. They are also interactive and specially designed to make sure attendees do not feel they are back in school. Participants will be challenged to look inwards, and to reflect on how they perceive the world to enable them to break down barriers.

Booking is easy and can be done via www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/lancashire-recovery-college-18333378559 using course codes in the Lancashire Recovery College Autumn/Winter 2019 Prospectus.

SU Support for Activities and Societies

If students would like to engage with activities, clubs, and/or societies run through the Students’ Union but need support with the process of signing up and getting involved, a referral can be made to the Activities Officer, via a request to: SUActivities@uclan.ac.uk.


Sport and Wellbeing Programme Activate Your Mind

The aim of this group is to encourage students who might shy away from exercise to explore the positive impact physical activity can have on their mental wellbeing. We aim to offer a range of activities, so students can find one they enjoy and might otherwise avoid and develop the confidence to continue with it. Students do not need to be typically sporty to be active.

The group is aimed at students who are experiencing mild-moderate symptoms of depression and/or anxiety, who would like to increase their levels of activity to benefit their mental health and wellbeing. The group lasts for 5 weeks on a Wednesday afternoon. To find out more, please email us on wellbeing@uclan.ac.uk
