If you have noticed thoughts that you would be better off dead, or of hurting yourself in some way we would advise the following:
- If these thoughts are urgent/with the intent to harm yourself please visit our Urgent Help page which provides advice on how to seek immediate help.
- If these thoughts are none-urgent/fleeting thoughts with no intent to harm yourself, we recommend mentioning how you feel to your Assessor/Support Worker and to inform your GP at your next visit.
We have a range of life skills courses available that can help with a variety of challenging life situations.
We would like to offer you access to one of our life skills courses which are designed to help issues like stress and low mood.
You will also have access to:
- Attractive relevant courses for low mood, stress and whole lot more
- Tools to help you make effective plans
- Never forget another important thing you wanted to do again: Set up Reminder emails to jog your memory.
- Worksheets, videos and courses
- Content for use across many of the key times of life- work, home, children and more
- The option to ask for a support review from our friendly phone-based coaches (NHS support) if you wish to ask for this (this is not offered unless you request a review)
Optional support phone calls by our coaching staff:
This service is particularly suitable for anyone aged 16 or over with common mental health and emotional issues such as low mood, stress, anxiety and depression. If your difficulties are more long term and severe, you could benefit more from an assessment with a mental health professional – your GP would be able to discuss this with you in more detail. You can also continue with the course independently without the coaching sessions.
If you feel this service is suitable for you, we would like to offer you the option of free, short support phone calls from one of our friendly, locally based NHS coaches. If you take this offer up, the support calls each last up to around 30 minutes at a time that suits. The coach will offer hints, tips and encouragement to help you stay on track (usually up to four short support contacts – occurring once a fortnight). You will also get the opportunity to monitor your mood and review your progress.
Paid for by the NHS this is completely free as a resource for locally based GP practices whether you choose to work on it independently or opt for the register for coaching sessions.
This option will take you to a secure form to enter your contact details. Someone from your medical practice will get back to you within a few days.
