The COVIDWEL course offers you immediately useful, hands-on support for your wellbeing, health and resilience during this difficult era, and then beyond, after COVID. It will help you to help yourself. It is completely free as a contribution in these hard times.
The course distils three hours from the full 20-hour WEL course – an evidence-based approach scientifically proven to help people transform their wellbeing.
In Part 1, we explore the ‘missing edge’ of the Pandemic Triangle – your ability to resist infection and recover from it. This complements our current critical preventative measures and treatments. We examine how the ‘soil’ of poor health allows the ‘seed’ of the virus to take deeper root. Then we focus on ways to tackle our mental health, wellbeing and coping challenges and ways that shift our perceptions and activate our self-care as we navigate the storms of the pandemic.
In Part 2, we narrow our focus onto specific steps you can take immediately to strengthen your resilience to infection and your recovery from it. You will learn three key targeted areas for action with your nutrition.
Everything you learn in the COVIDWEL will be of great ongoing value to you when the pandemic is over, helping you turn your way of living around

Friends were successful in gaining £500 from local giving. In partnership with the NHS Friends of the Centre for Integrative Care and the Whiteinch Centre, this grant helped us to develop a Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) online class for beginners. With the support from the Whiteinch Centre who provided the IT training and support, along with the grant that allowed us to buy the equipment needed, Friends supported 5 individuals to get online and take part in the course. The preparatory work has taken place and the online class will start on the 13th April 2021@8pm. Watch this space for further classes and updates.

Today we seen the launch of the European Interest group on integrative care and health.The newly established Interest Group on Integrative Medicine & Health continues the work of the former MEP Interest Group on CAM. This group brings together MEPs who work collectively to promote the inclusion of CAM as part of Integrative Medicine & Health in all possible European Parliament public health policy.
It is lovely to see this progress in European countries. The Friends are a member of this group and we look forward to following and being involved with the work of this European group. For more information and to view the presentations from the launch, clinic here
