Calm Distress is a new online course from NHS Lanarkshire Psychological Services, designed for you to use in your own time and at your own pace. It is all about understanding emotions and improving wellbeing, during Covid-19 and beyond.
The pandemic means NHS staff can’t run classes or groups in the community like we used to – but we can provide high-quality psychological help online via our Lanarkshire Mind Matters website.
Over five friendly sessions, Calm Distress will help you open up to day-to-day stress, recognise your warning signs, and learn new ways to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings. Each Calm Distress video is about 20 minutes long, giving you lots of useful information in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. There are also booklets to go alongside the videos, which you can download and dip into if you wish: do it how you feel it works for you.
You can access Calm Distress through Lanarkshire Mind Matters online: click here to go directly to the Calm Distress page. Register online and we will send you a password to access the course. You can then keep coming back to it as often as you like.
