Description

A comprehensive guide to how an individual can help themselves resolve a wide variety of ordinary, everyday life problems and improve their mental health. 'This is an extensive collection of self-help material, which has been written to provide resources to complement self-exploration or professional counselling. The knowledge has been built up through years of working in the field of mental health, listening to patients, and searching for the materials that could make a difference. The skill is in how the handouts have been put together to be easily accessible and helpful, and in a format that allows flexibility and tailoring to the individual. The attitude of current evidence-based guidelines is to support a range of self-help approaches and talking therapies to enable people to achieve better mental health, rather than turning to drugs. This is therefore a most welcome tool from which patients will benefit, and indeed, we could all use to help us achieve a better life/work balance and feeling of well-being.'- Dr Patricia Donald, MBE
