Only the Lonely

Feelings of loneliness and social isolation are unfortunately all too common in our communities and indeed across the world.  The impact of these can have a real detrimental impact on the people it affects so this three week course aims to help learners combat feelings of loneliness and to build and develop strong social connections.  Over MS Teams we will discuss the difference between feeling lonely and being socially isolated, will learn strategies to enable us to feel content in our own company and create an individual plan to help keep us socially connected.  All learners will receive a printed workbook in the post to work through as well as having the option to attend the three MS Team sessions.
Starts: Tuesday 8 June 10.30-11.45am
