The Honest Open Proud Mental Health Professionals (HOP-MH) self-help programme

Run by University College London, they are currently open to participants in joining who wish to explore their sharing options about their lived (past or current) experience of mental ill health.

It can also be helpful to remember that the same mechanisms for support can be accessed by therapists as by the people we are working with, including A&E, Samaritans (116123) and NHS health services through your GP. Finding a therapist privately is also an option and CBT Register provides BABCP accredited therapists in your area.
