Things You Do Course

Background

 

We have developed the Things You Do Course for people experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression. This treatment aims to support people to do everyday activities which we know can support psychological health.

The types of activities the course will encourage you to do include:

  • Healthy Thinking

  • Meaningful Activities

  • Setting Goals

  • Good Routines

  • Socialising

The Things You Do Course is designed to help people learn about the every day things they can do to improve their emotional wellbeing, and to increase those things. It's designed to do this in a really simple way that does not require much commitment - using a brief lesson and some practical resources.

  • An Activity Guide which provides a list of suggested activities to try.

What have we found so far?

This is the first time we are offering the ‘Things You Do’ Course. However, it is designed to help people increase how often they do a range of everyday actions which have been linked to better mental health. So, we expect it to be helpful.


What is the current trial or study looking at?

Every time we offer a course we offer it as a part of a trial or study. This means that participants are helping us to answer an important research question while they participate in our courses.

The current trial of the Things You Do Course is examining its effectiveness and helpfulness to people with depression and anxiety. We are also interested in getting feedback about peoples' experience of participating in the course and trying to increase their everyday activities.

You can read more about the current trial by reading the Participant Information and Consent Form Statement
