white heart logo What is self help?

Self-help uses techniques that you learn to help you manage your mental health, situations or problems that arise.

This includes:

  • Learning about your condition and what’s happening
  • Altering unhelpful behaviour
  • Noticing and challenging unhelpful thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Goal setting


This approach is proved to be extremely helpful when experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties.
