Beating the Blues
Beating the Blues is a free, confidential, self-help computerised treatment that uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help people experiencing anxiety and depression. It can be accessed within 10 working days, is very simple to use and support is provided. The treatment is recommended in the National Institute for Health anc Care Excellence (NICE) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) guidelines. Studies show Beating the Blues is effective at reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression for patients aged 65 years and over.
"It made you look at things in a different way ... you can talk yourself or think yourself out of situations that are crippling".(NHS Tayside patient, 80-90 years of age)
There are 8 x 60 minute sessions that you can access online to help you focus on resolving your issues. You work at your own pace on a computer or laptop to develop helpful ways of thinking and behaving which help you to feel better and stay better.
