Designed to help with symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and low mood.
Beating the Blues is an online programme proven to help people who are feeling stressed, depressed, anxious or just generally low. Beating the Blues is based on cognitive-behavioural therapy – a psychological therapy that focuses on the relationships between thoughts (cognitions), behaviours and feelings.
Beating the Blues is accessible through PC's, laptops, tablets and most smart phones.
Beating the Blues consists of eight sessions. Each session is made up of 3-5 modules. Each module takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. It has interactive elements and video examples of other people’s experiences for you to watch to aid understanding.
For the programme to be most effective, we advise completing a module every couple of days, about one session every week.
The sessions focus on what is happening in your life here and now and help you see the link between how your thinking influences how you feel and behave. The programme supports you to set goals and make positive changes.
Beating the Blues is most effective if you also do the tasks recommended in each session.
The programme is confidential and available 24/7 so you can work through it at your own pace. It can be accessed at home or at a library, if you prefer.
Discuss the program with your GP or Health professional who will be able to make a referral to the service for you.
