Upcoming Courses, Workshops & Peer Support Groups
Our BeWell@StepOne service provides support to as many people as possible across the county through online courses, workshops and face-to-face peer support groups. We help people in need of mental health support to manage their own wellbeing and, through peer groups, support others in their communities.
Our courses are completely free and run by professional, qualified and supportive tutors with lived experience of mental health conditions.

- Managing Your Anger Course – Wednesday 10th August
Running over 4 weeks, this course will help you understand the anger emotion, teach you how to identify and deal with personal anger triggers and how to effectively deal with others when anger arises. This course isn’t about making anger disappear, but using anger in a healthy and controlled way.
- Behavioral Activation – An Outside-In Approach Course – Wednesday 31st August
This 4-week online course will allow you to explore strategies associated with behavioral activation, helping you to break the cycle of depression and build up the confidence and motivation to tackle depressive states.
What's on this September?
- Braving Bereavement Course – Thursday 8th September
This 4 week online course allows you to explore your grief and encourage you not to ‘let go’ of the person you have lost, but find a way to move forward and carry on their memory with you.
- Changing Negative Self-Talk Workshop – Monday 12th September
We all have that little voice that makes us doubt ourselves, or gives us that internal negative feedback. This 2 hour workshop will help you to challenge that voice and consider alternative possibilities to make your inner voice more positive.
