Guided Self Management

When experiencing distress, there are many things you can do on your own in order to feel better. Self-management programmes are effective and free tools you can use to improve your well-being and research shows that they are even more effective if they are guided. Perhaps you have a friend, family member, or a health provider who can work through the programme with you to ensure you get the most out of it. To get started, click on the relevant link below:
