Self-help guides can be an excellent option for those concerned about their mental health. Our self-help guides have been written by clinical psychologists, and provide suggestions for simple ways in which you can begin to make positive changes, tailored to a wide variety of issues.
The guides are accessible, easy to use and relatively short (20-30 pages). Each guide is also available as an audiofile – you may find listening an easier way to access the materials, especially if you are finding it hard to concentrate on written materials.
Studies have demonstrated the positive impact that self-help materials can have on people’s lives, however, it’s important to recognise that self-help guides are not a substitute for professional support. If you're dealing with serious mental health challenges or you don't feel that things are improving, you ought to think about seeking more personalised guidance through the Mental Health and Wellbeing Service or your GP.
