Angus residents living with fatigue are invited to come along to a free Fatigue Management Programme to help manage excessive tiredness caused by a variety of conditions.

If you are excessively tired most of the time and find it difficult to do simple, everyday things due to fatigue then this course could be for you.

The course is delivered by a partnership involving physiotherapy, occupational therapy and psychology services and is open to anyone for whom fatigue is an ongoing issue, often due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis or fibromyalgia.

The three-week course starts in Montrose on Wednesday, 23 March. The sessions will provide a range of information about fatigue and how to manage it, and is also an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation.

The programme aims to help people understand their fatigue and to develop self-management mechanisms with the support of professionals and others affected by fatigue. It is ideal for adults who want to manage their fatigue more effectively, regardless of the underlying cause.
