Supported self-help - Doncaster Mind

Monday 11th December 2023

We want to let you know about a new free mental health support service called Supported self-help - a Doncaster and South Yorkshire wide service in partnership with Sheffield Mind and Rotherham & Barnsley Mind which is now open to the people in Doncaster who may find it helpful. 

This programme is a six-week guided programme for adults experiencing mild-to-moderate mental health problems and is based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). 

The programme is a step two intervention as part of the stepped care model in England and is in line with National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for guided self-help. 

It is delivered by our practitioners who are trained to support people through one of eight pathways: 

  • anxiety and panic attacks  

  • coping with grief and loss  

  • loneliness and feeling lonely  

  • low self esteem  

  • low mood and depression  

  • managing anger  

  • managing stress 

  • understanding menopause  

Supported self-help is ideal for anybody who is not currently accessing mental health treatment and/or may be on a waiting list for additional mental health support. They don’t need a formal diagnosis and this programme can provide an excellent early intervention.
