At the Recovery College we aim to support our students in managing their own health and wellbeing. In our health and wellbeing courses, we cover both physical and emotional health issues and as well as strategies for diet, sleep and exercise. We have courses at our hub in Mapperley and at six venues across Nottinghamshire. If you are interested in finding out more about our courses, please refer to our prospectus.
Just one part of a wellbeing plan can be developing strategies for weight management. We thought our readers would be interested to know about the Everyone Health programme which supports behaviour change around healthy eating, weight management and physical activity to manage weight loss and maintain this long term.
If you are a Nottinghamshire resident with a body mass index (BMI) above 25, you may be eligible for a free 12 month community-based weight management service. If you are not sure what your BMI is, you can check it on the NHS BMI calculator.
The weight management programme includes:
- 12 week group based programme
- nutritional advice
- physical activity sessions
- sessions in local areas
- walking groups
- review sessions at 6 and 12 months
- ongoing support lasting up to 12 months
If you are interested in the programme, please contact the organisers via the Everyone Health website.
