This course is part of a Government funded project called Self Health – a national research project designed to measure the impact of adult education courses on mental health and wellbeing. It is for anyone with mild to moderate mental health issues.
A course for complete beginners or those who have tried and forgotten how. Learn how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off in a relaxed and friendly environment. At the end of the course you will have the skills and knowledge to follow a simple pattern and will have knitted a selection of samples using different stitches.
Who Can Attend?
The project is open to anyone aged 19 or over who has mild to moderate mental health challenges such as finding it hard to go out, not sleeping, worrying, feeling stressed, anxious, sad or low. You will be asked to complete a self-assessment of your mental health to see if you meet the criteria to be involved in the project. People can only attend one Self Health course so that as many people as possible can take part in the research project and provide us with their data. If you have already completed a Self Health course between September 2015 and April 2017 you will not be able to attend another long course but you can attend a Workshop for Returning Learners
