The Introduction course give you the chance to find out what we do:

You will meet other people with the same kind of experience.  You will learn about the different ways you can support your health and wellbeing, and have a chance to try a couple of them out for real.  You will meet some of our staff and find out about all our services.  You will have a tour of the building, so you can see for yourself whether you might want to come on a residential course later on.
Introduction courses run several times a month on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10am – 3pm.
They take place at our National Centre just outside Bristol. If you are coming from further away, there is one taster a month when you can spend the night here. Intro days include lunch and snacks.
