In fact, it is any health condition that detrimentally affects your health in the longer term.”If you have a long term condition, being in control will result in greater confidence and better health and well-being.  You probably know quite a lot about your own condition already, and you may even feel that you are managing your condition very well, but the self management courses can provide you with additional support to help make the choices that suit you in areas that you may feel you need that little bit of extra help.”The self management courses are free of charge and are run over six weekly sessions, each lasting 2 ½ hours.  Courses are being provided across the county.  If you would like some more information on this course or would like to book a place on a course, you can contact the HSE Consumer Services Department on 9189016 or email [email protected]  All enquiries are welcome.
