Evidence shows that many people welcome talking about their weight when raised appropriately and sensitively.
The Session aims to help raise awareness and understanding of how to talk about weight and the various routes available for weight support in Leeds.
The session will cover:
• Tips and Hints to have healthy conversations about weight
• What is a T2 Weight Support Service
• What services are available in Leeds – speakers from One You Leeds, Leeds Rhinos Foundation, Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust (LYPFT)
