Our free Anxiety Management courses run over two five hour sessions in Ipswich or Bury St Edmunds and for anyone aged 18+.
Our Anxiety Management course will help you to:
- Recognise the behaviours of anxiety
- Become aware and begin to understand anxiety
- Learn new practical coping strategies and skills
Our courses are currently free due to funding that Suffolk Mind has been awarded. The course is over two days and participants must be able to attend both course sessions. Our courses currently run during the day, Monday to Friday.
Our courses can have up to 14 participants in each session BUT there is NO expectation that you participate beyond the level you feel comfortable with, you do not need to speak if you do not want to.
Members of each course are expected to be supportive of each other, by listening and not being judgemental in their feedback or suggestions. Everyone is to have the opportunity to talk and contribute to the group. If there is something that you don’t understand then feel free to ask. There is no such thing as a “silly question” – only those that you have yet to find the answer to.
You will receive a course booklet and certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

ONLY once these forms have been returned to Suffolk Mind will your place be confirmed.
