Self-Help Techniques from Gateshead Talking Therapies
Our friends at Gateshead Talking Therapies regularly visit Gateshead Health sites to deliver stalls, sharing more about their support offer and how they can help those who are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed.
Over on their website, Gateshead Talking Therapies recommend the following tools as potentially useful to those exploring self-help tools.
- NHS Choices: Including their ‘5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing’, general tips, support, guides, tools and activities as well as signposting on how to get more urgent help for mental health, the NHS is always a good starting point for mental health matters.
- Mental Health Self Help Guides: Our NHS colleagues over at CNTW have put together a range of self-help leaflets around specific topics, inclusive of abuse, alcohol, anxiety, bereavement, anger, depression, domestic abuse, eating disorders, diet and exercise, health anxiety, intrusive thoughts, obsessions and compulsions, panic, trauma, postnatal depression, self-harm, social anxiety, sleep, stress and more. Though branded with CNTW, the content within is applicable to all!
- Living Life to the Full: Known as LLTTF, Living Life to the Full provide free access to online courses which cover low mood, stress and resilience – helping you to better understand your feelings, how to tackle issues, build confidence and get going again.
