Smokers in Calderdale who are trying to quit and have experienced stress, panic and anxiety can now sign up to a free course run by the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

‘Go smoke free! The stress less way’ is a free 10-week course for people who may have tried to quit in the past but found it hard previously.

The course, which will take place on Thursdays from 10am to 1pm at the Kings Centre, Halifax, will cover relaxation techniques, challenging old beliefs, coping mechanisms and helping people manage the feelings they experience.

The course is open to anyone over 18 in Calderdale and people must be able to commit to the full ten weeks.
