Leading mental health charity, Aware , is launching mindfulness courses in Lisburn’s Bridge Community Centre on Monday (July 27).

A spokesperson said: “If you enjoy the sunshine or exercise outdoors, then the summer evenings are perfect; however, if you suffer from depression, the long nights can be difficult.

“Prompted by this challenge, leading mental health and depression charity, Aware, is launching summer Mindfulness workshops.

“Starting on Monday, July 27 from 2-4pm in the Bridge Community Centre, the workshops will be taken by Aware’s Mindfulness Practitioner, Frank Liddy, and will last approximately 2.5 hours.

“Aware is the leading charity in the north that works exclusively for those experiencing depression and bipolar disorder.

“Mindfulness is a world recognised technique that can help participants decrease anxiety, worry and stress.”

Aware Chief Executive, Siobhan Doherty added: “Our Mindfulness courses provide people with the tools that will enable and empower them to discover their full potential by tapping into their reservoir of resilience.

“We have been delivering Mindfulness now for almost a year and the feedback from participants has been amazing.”

Mr Liddy, said: “I’m really looking forward to our Mindfulness Summer Programme as I know it will be rewarding for both me and the participants.

“Aware’s Mindfulness Programme is tailored to explore the direct experiences of the participants and the obstacles that may arise in everyday life.

“Our experience to date has shown that people coming to our courses have reported that they have discovered a new way of being, gained confidence and awareness, as well as developing the tools and skills necessary to deal with life’s challenges.”
