Chapter is providing free remote 1-2-1 support via telephone or video call to people living with a mental health diagnosis who require additional support to manage their mental health and wellbeing as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
Support available includes:
- 1-2-1 support via telephone or video call with an experienced mental health and wellbeing coach.
- Support to build confidence and self-esteem, and manage anxieties and stress.
- Coaching to help you adapt to new ways of promoting positive mental health.
- Support to set SMART goals that help you work towards maintaining and managing your mental health and wellbeing.
- Signposting to other services that can help you achieve your goals.
Using a wellbeing star tailored to the coronavirus situation you will explore factors affecting your wellbeing. A wellbeing coach will help guide you through the wellbeing star, assisting you to identify areas of your life that are going well, and areas you might like to change.
Who is eligible for the service?
Currently, anyone 18 or over who resides in the West Cheshire area and has a diagnosed mental health condition. This includes common mental health and serious mental illness.
The service is particularly useful for individuals who normally manage their mental health and wellbeing independently, but require support as a result of uncertainty, anxieties or worries around coronavirus, or changes to their situation as a result of the coronavirus situation.
How do I access the service?
By completing an online self-referral form.
Professionals working within the field of mental health, social care and housing can also make referrals on behalf of individuals they are working with.
Please note, this is not a helpline and referral into the service is required before support can be offered.
What happens once I’m referred?
Once referred you will be contacted by a member of the Chapter team to complete a short assessment over the telephone.
You will then be assigned to a wellbeing coach who will offer a course of three to four sessions conducted via telephone or video call (or a combination) depending on your needs. Additional sessions can be offered for those that need it.
