Feeling down? Anxious? Depressed? Worrying? Free self-help online video course from Public Health Wales
“ACTivate Your Life on the Public Health Wales website
This is a free psychoeducational resource for all adults and we hope that it will be widely accessed and will prove useful to many, many people – including those who would normally have benefitted from live presentations of the course through Health Boards across Wales as well as the specialist versions presented in clinics and prisons.
We hope that when the restrictions due to the pandemic subside, the live presentations of ACTivate Your Life will resume, with the online version then remaining as an additional resource.
The online version is available in both English and Welsh and retains the structure of the live version. Thus there are 4 videos, each lasting approximately 45 minutes, and accompanying written synopses and Activity Sheets as well as some guided Mindfulness audios.”
Here are the links to the Public Health Wales website that hosts the English version of the course:
