Impact will be back at the end of August with the first of our autumn courses.

Whether you are referring people to us, or you would like to join us in autumn, we have courses to help everyone.

Here’s a look at all of our courses and some changes and improvements we have made…

Mind Time Evening Course is now delivered over two evenings with empowering information and plenty of wellbeing practices to help immediately start to reduce unhelpful thoughts and emotions. A great introduction to wellbeing for people busy during the day time.

Unlock Menopause is delivered over six days and enables women to better understand this transitional time, and importantly what we could do to help ourselves better manage our changing bodies and our emotions.

YOUR Choice is a new course that replaces the nine week Your Recovery Pathways. 

Delivered two days a week over 4 weeks, YOUR Choice will support, empower and educate people using the mind management model to make better sense of their mental wellbeing, and learn how to effectively use tried and tested wellbeing techniques to improve emotional and mental health.

Good news for anyone who has attended Your Recovery Pathways in the past, if you would like to, you are now warmly invited to register for the new YOUR Choice!

The YOU Programme continues to be delivered for two days over two weeks and remains our flagship introduction course to help people begin to understand the mind management model whilst learning what activities and practices they can do to begin the process of feeling better, mentally and emotionally. 

All of our courses remain free of charge to residents in Central Bedfordshire and Bedford, and continue online with Zoom.

Registration is now open for our autumn courses, with more courses being added to our online course calendar in the next couple of weeks.

If you would like to know more about our courses, how we teach and measure wellbeing, please get in touch to speak to one of our team.

Dealing With The Menopause

In 2012, on a typical workday, if you had asked me ‘So, what do you do…?’ , I would probably have made some excuse up and left the room without answering.

Impact Mental Health Founder, Déanne Clark

The thing is, I knew what I did, I knew the answer, I’d been doing it for a while! 

But the Menopausal and Perimenopausal Brain Fog I had started to experience, totally and utterly stopped me from remembering some pretty basic stuff, like names, places and what I did for a living!

Brain fog and mood shifts, migraines and a raft of other symptoms descended upon me like a tidal wave, and I had no idea what to do…

At Impact, we have created the free Unlock Menopause course to help, support and guide women struggling with any of the three stages of change.

The course examines the facts, busts a few myths and empowers women to talk openly, honestly and work together to find what makes a difference to managing symptoms and improving the quality of health and wellbeing for every woman.

The Unlock Menopause course is held regularly, check out the dates below.

If you are struggling and want to know more about how you can help yourself, sign up and we’ll see you there, or give us a call for a chat. 💚

An Impact Mental Health Success Story

Impact just received this lovely message from a learner who attended and completed The YOU Programme in February, 2023.

Just a quick note to let you know that sadly I won’t be able to attend the “Your Recovery Pathways” programme.

Reason being, I have been offered a job! Of course, I am super excited but also gutted that I will miss the programme. I was very much looking forward to it!

I wanted to thank you SO very much for all the work you do at IMPACT and for us, individuals.

As you know I have suffered with poor mental health since a very young age and have gone through a lot of counselling etc

However! I have to say that the YOU programme I did with you recently, has had more impact (excuse the pun, but I guess you couldn’t have given your support group a better name), than any counselling I have ever had.

It really gets you deep! No waffle, straight to the point (with care and sensitivity of course) and for me it has made my spiritual side come back. This links perfectly well with exercises such as meditation, manifestation, etc.

I feel more positive about the short-term future. I don’t want to look too far ahead, or I will lose myself. I want to work on small periods of time to begin with. Easier to manage and control.

I even enrolled on a 3 month course to understand and help children with mental health, in schools for example.

How much I have learnt from your programme has been priceless for me and the biggest gift I could ever wish for!

THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – From the bottom of my heart!

Do keep up with the amazing work that you do and if I can be of any help, do let me know!
