More wellness webinars offered by SLAM, free to all

I just wanted to post the latest offerings of the South London and Maudsley Recovery College to help us stay well during this crisis. Hope some might find it useful.

Hello Students, Colleagues and Friends,
We understand how difficult a time this is for everybody, and particularly for people who experience long term health conditions.
As SLaM Recovery College is unable to offer any classroom-based workshops now, our team has been working behind the scenes to develop some online content, including vlogs, webinars and e-learning.
Every week we will email you the details of webinars we are offering in the following week.

These sessions are available to everyone, free of charge. You don’t need to be a SLaM Recovery College student or have any connection at all to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

We just ask that you answer a few questions and let us know which sessions you’d like to be a part of, using one of the registration form links below, and we’ll then send you links to the webinars you’ve chosen.
New for this week! Staying Well and Making Plans, and Managing Anxiety During Difficult Times.
