Wirral Mind – Beating the Blues

Posted on November 2nd, 2021

What is Beating the Blues?

Beating the Blues is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) programme delivered online that teaches you techniques to help you manage symptoms such as stress, anxiety, and depression. Watch how people with similar symptoms to your own have been helped by the programme. Complete simple exercises to learn the techniques and practice them in your own time to start feeling better.

How will Beating the Blues help me?

Beating the Blues helps you to manage how you feel by showing you the link between your feelings and what you do, think and say. Using Beating the Blues can help you feel better and stay well but it may also be useful for you to speak to your GP or health care professional about your condition.

How do I complete the programme?

The 8 sessions each consist of 3-5 modules and you should aim to complete 1 module every other day. You can continue where you left off and it will take you approximately 8 to 10 weeks to complete.

Where can I use Beating the Blues?

The programme is all online and can be used anywhere via a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. All you need is a stable internet connection, speakers or headphones to listen to the audio and follow the programme narrative. Subtitles are also available.
