Workshop content
This is an interactive workshop which guides people around the Happy? OK? Sad? site; explains how to navigate it; and gives an overview of the different pages and their content. The workshop also covers some of the resources and training opportunities which the Public Health Team offers.

The session involves participants completing an exercise in pairs, by navigating the Happy? OK? Sad? site on their own phones, tablets or computers. If you’re booking onto the session and don’t have a device on which you can access the internet, then please let us know at the time you book and we’ll arrange for a device to be made available.
