Information and skills for managing depression, anxiety and stress

Skills for Wellbeing is a FREE 4 week workshop-based, group program that will provide you with useful information, tips and strategies for dealing with mild levels of mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, stress and sleep quality.

Workshops are available in locations in Adelaide's Northern and Western metropolitan areas.

Mental Health Treatment Plans are not required and clients are able to self-refer.

What will you learn

  • Mindfulness
  • Self-care
  • Dealing with unpleasant and negative thoughts
  • Stress and sleep
  • Goal setting

Is Skills for Wellbeing right for me?

Skills for Wellbeing will suit you if you are comfortable learning in a group setting and are also dealing with mild to moderate mental health concerns (such as depression, anxiety and stress) or you may be at risk of developing such concerns.

Skills for Wellbeing is considered a low intensity mental health intervention, so what you will get out of the session will be mostly information as well as some tips and strategies for managing mild to moderate challenges to your mental wellbeing. It is not therapeutic counselling, and it is not “group therapy” either, but you may find that the foundational skills and information you learn will be useful to you if therapeutic counselling is something you later wish to pursue.

To be eligible for the program, you need to:

  • Be over the age of 14
  • Live in the north or western suburbs of Adelaide
  • Be experiencing mild to moderate mental health concerns, or be at risk of developing a mental health condition
