Smokers in Calderdale who have experienced stress, anxiety and panic while trying to quit smoking can now sign up to a free course run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust which aims to teach them new ways to cope in order to quit for good.
‘Go smoke free! The stress less way’ is a new, free course for people who have tried to quit smoking, but struggled due to feelings of stress and anxiety, or have never tried to quit because they feel they won’t be able to cope.
The course will take place every Thursday from 10am – 1pm at The Kings Centre in Halifax, starting 12 March 2015 for 10 weeks. It is open to anyone aged over 18 living in the Calderdale area, and you must be able to commit to the full 10 weeks.
The course is delivered jointly by two of South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s experienced teams – stop smoking service Yorkshire Smokefree in Calderdale, and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), a service which helps people to get quick and easy access to support for conditions such as stress and depression.
