Workshops and Programmes
Here you will find information about all of the group workshops and self-help programmes currently on offer. You can choose between attending a facilitated group based workshop or a self-guided programme which you can do in your own time. Many people choose to try both methods to find out which one suits them best. All of the services listed here are free of charge to anyone living in Sandwell, or registered with a Sandwell doctor.
