Health and Wellbeing courses

I have just put my name down to attend a free Health and Wellbeing course at a local centre, it's once a week for a couple of hours for six weeks. It's for anyone with a chronic illness and helps deal with pain depression, exercise and generally coping with life. It's not a pain clinic as such as it does'nt deal with actual medication but more how to cope. I think they do them all over the country. I'm looking forward to it.
