What is supported self-help?
Supported self-help is a free, 6-week guided programme. Mind give you the materials to understand and manage your feelings and they will call you regularly to give you support.
You don't need a GP referral to sign up for supported self-help.
This is a one-to-one guided self-help service, not a counselling service. But Mind practitioners do use counselling based skills in their support. It incorporates some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) style tools but also provides other kinds of support.
