Building Resilience aims to equip you with the skills to manage the impact of your long-term physical health condition on your life and feel more like you again.
Why we feel low, or overwhelmed, and what we can do to feel better.
How our daily routines, the food we eat, and our habits can help or hinder our mood.
How our mood affects how we manage our physical health condition, and what we can do to feel more in control.
How to spot and challenge those unhelpful thoughts that pop up when we're stressed or down.
How to keep up the progress we've made during this course, stay motivated, and move forward.
We'll suggest actions you can take to put what you're learning into practice.
We'd like to call you a few weeks after the course to see how you're getting on. This is your choice.
In the final session we will ask you if you'd like a review call and set a date if you do.
We will also send a feedback survey to see if there's any way we can improve our service.
Building Resilience aims to empower you to work on your recovery independently, so we allow you the space to do this, and we do not routinely monitor your progress.
During the course, if you begin to feel that Managing Moods is not for you, that's ok.
Simply contact us and we will be happy to talk through other options.
We will send you a questionnaire each week to check in with you. If you do not receive this, you can complete the questionnaire using this link.
This questionnaire helps us to check in with your safety and helps make sure we are supporting you appropriately.
If you have thoughts of harming yourself or others please contact your GP immediately.
If you need to talk at any time, call Samaritans on 116 123.
