As March arrives, the official start of spring and the daylight saving time adjustment are not the only events to look forward to. This month also hosts various holidays and observances that you can participate in, along with our upcoming BeWell courses and workshops which are designed to equip Devon residents with the knowledge and skills to help you manage your mental health and wellbeing.
6th March - Declutter Your Home and Mind course
This course will help you to realise the effect of clutter in your home on your mental health. Most of us want our homes to be our sanctuary, a place where we can feel relaxed in our bodies and minds, but clutter in the home can actually cause a lot of stress. When we declutter, it helps us to feel more in control.
30th March - World Bipolar Day
World Bipolar Day is celebrated each year on 30 March, the birthday of Vincent Van Gogh, who was diagnosed with bipolar after he died. The vision of World Bipolar Day is to encourage understanding about what bipolar is – and isn’t – and to banish stigma from the face of the planet.
30th March - Social Anxiety workshop
Social anxiety disorder’ or ‘social phobia’ is a fear of social situations. Often people with social anxiety will avoid social situations at all costs. This 2-hour workshop will explore negative core beliefs and discuss various strategies to improve social interaction.
