Wellbeing services

Rochdale and District Mind offer a wide variety of wellbeing services to help local residents. The first step in accessing any of the help available at Rochdale and District Mind is to complete a referral form and to meet a Wellbeing Coordinator to discuss your issues. You and your Wellbeing Coordinator will then build up an individual action plan to tackle your issues.

Living Life to the Full Course

This course uses a popular self-help format using the CBT model which is proven to help people develop life skills that help them tackle feelings of low mood, stress and distress. It empowers users to understand why they feel as they do, and to learn new ways of improving how they feel – the course aims to provide ready access to key information. The course is based on “Helping people to help themselves”.

The course is supported by a series of CBT self-help workbooks that can be used between the sessions. They encourage the reader to put what they have learnt into practice and to stop, think, reflect on what is being learned.

Please get in touch for a place on this course.
