Did you know you can now self-refer to our personal development courses?

We run a variety of courses throughout the year, all of which have been developed to give participants the opportunity to learn about their mental health, increase their self-awareness and learn self-management skills. If can often also be a nice opportunity to meet people going through similar experiences in a supportive environment.

You can refer to:

Positive Wellbeing – In this 8 session course we look at stress, anxiety, panic, depression, self-esteem & assertiveness. The aim being for participants to gain knowledge, skills and the ability to manage their wellbeing.

Promoting Better Sleep – Learn to change thoughts and behaviours that inhibit sleep and set personal goals that will enable a more restorative and rejuvenating sleep.

Improving Self-esteem & Communications – In this 8 session course gain knowledge, skills and the ability to increase your self-esteem, self-compassion and personal communication.

CBT for Anxiety – Gain knowledge of anxiety, develop self-awareness and learn to apply practical cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques to identify, monitor and manage your anxiety.

Seasons for Growth – In this course we bring the cycle of loss and grief to life through the seasons. We aim to help individuals to work through the process of moving on and come out of the other side stronger and ready to take charge of the changes in their life. The course is suitable for those affected by any type of loss or change.

Join us on social on our birthday

The 16th of June is our ‘formal’ 40th birthday! Services will be closed so that all of the team can join in with our day of events.

Celebrations at FDAMH will be low key due to the pandemic, but the good news is we’re celebrating our 40th all year and hope to organise an in-person celebration after restrictions are lifted – so you can share some birthday cake with us then!

In the meantime, please follow our social media channels on the 16th June, we will be sharing our celebrations including the dedication of our Activity Room in memory of Joyce Cottle, who was the driving force behind the creation of FDAMH all those years ago.

Our staff will be out and about on a fundraising challenge and looking for your support and we’ll be sharing some lovely birthday messages from some well-known faces!

We really hope our day will raise community awareness of FDAMH and the support available to people and families struggling with mental health issues – so please do share our posts on social media!
