The WEA in Nottingham are involved in a national research project funded and co-ordinated by the Department for Education.

The purpose of the research study is to find an answer to the following question:

‘Can community learning courses help people manage better problems they are experiencing, like not sleeping, stress, finding it hard to go out, worrying, feeling anxious, sad or low?’

This video has been produced by Face Forward Partnership and Knowsley Council to highlight the beneficial effect of adult learning for men with mild to moderate mental health issues. It’s an inspirational one minute and thirty nine seconds.
