  • Art for Wellbeing

  • Managing Anxiety
  • Managing Anger
  • Food and Mood

Robyn Kohler, CEO for Aspire Sussex said: “With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing mental ill health at some point in their life, we are pleased to be part of the government pilot and look forward to helping many people to improve their mental wellbeing through learning over the course of the next year.”
