What is the content of this module?
The module focuses on the components of changing thoughts, doing activities, dealing with others, self-expression and control, goal setting and relapse prevention. Prior to the development of this module, research was conducted into the target group. The results of this research have been implemented in the module, such as many choices and interactive moments, stories from fellow sufferers, looking back, focusing on the why and telling it like it is.
An online mood diary has been added to the module that gives young people insight into their own mood pattern. In addition, an action plan is activated in which young people can work on a self-chosen goal.
This module is mobile compatible and can be used via the Minddistrict app or web platform.
Who is this module suitable for?
