Where to find help

Here is where you can find help for you or your loved one's current mental health.

The Decider Skills are effective, practical and memorable mental health skills for everyone. 

The Decider Skills complement all therapeutic approaches and can be used before, during and after therapy.

We recommend that ideally, The Decider Skills are learned BEFORE you really need them so that you are pre-loaded with effective practical coping strategies

 

Good mental health is about learning to monitor and manage your own emotions.

Read the Skills regularly - use your handbook, self help book or handouts
