The Thistle Lifestyle Management Course for Veterans

We are currently recruiting for a Lifestyle Management Course for Veteran’s. Please see the attached for details and it would be good if you could share with your teams.

The date of our Veterans Lifestyle Management Course will begin on Thursday 29th February, 13:00 – 16:00 (inclusive of a break) at Erskine House, 468 Gilmerton Road, Edinburgh. EH17 7SA. This will run for 10 consecutive weeks until Thursday 9th May.

The course has shown to have positive outcomes for many veterans feeling “stuck” knowing they want things to be different but just not sure where to start.

Our Lifestyle Management support begins with a 1-1 exploration of an individual’s ‘Best Hopes’ and then if choosing to engage with an LMC the course gives the opportunity for reflective conversation, focussing on “what’s working”, alongside topics which can be used to support changes for the things “not working so well”.  We also build in safe and appropriate graded exercise and relaxation practices.

If you know of anyone who may benefit from this support please don’t hesitate to contact Lee Downie (07771 097099) 9617) for more information, an informal chat or send over a referral to our referrals inbox referrals@thistle.org.uk<mailto:referrals@thistle.org.uk>. Please state VETERANS in your email.

If you require hard copies of leaflets please just let us know.
