Making a positive difference to your mental health.
Supported self-help is a free, 6-week guided programme.
We give you the materials to understand and manage your feelings. And we call you regularly to give you support.
You don’t need a GP referral to sign up for supported self-help.
This is a one-to-one guided self-help service, not a counselling service. But our practitioners do use counselling based skills in their support. It incorporates some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) style tools but also provides other kinds of support.
Once you’ve signed up, we’ll get in touch to talk about the issues you’re dealing with. If supported self-help is right for you, together we’ll agree a programme of support. This can cover any of the following:
If you move forward with supported self-help, we’ll invite you to a 40-minute session to discuss in more detail what support you’re looking for.
Each week we’ll call to check in on how you’re doing and give you any support you might need. We’ll also send you materials to help you understand and manage your feelings.
These might include:
In your last session, together we’ll review how you’re feeling and talk about the ways the course has helped. We’ll talk about what’s next and if Mind can support you in any other ways.
Get in touch and we’ll help you understand if supported self-help is right for you.
Supported self-help is free and available to adults aged 18+
