Better Living with a Health Condition Group

Posted on

Are you aged 13-16 and living with a chronic health condition? Would you like to learn ways of managing difficult thoughts and feelings while being able to do things that are important to you?

 The Paediatric Clinical Health Psychology Service is running a 6 week course to help young people develop a toolkit of strategies to help them deal with difficulties a health condition can bring while carrying out activities that are important to them.

 Taking part involves meeting other young people with similar experiences in a group setting. The group uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and includes learning skills such as mindfulness and problem solving. The group is likely to run on Wednesday afternoons from 27th June onwards, for an hour and a half, at Centre for Health Sciences, Old Perth Road, Inverness.

 If you are interested in taking part or would like chat about the group, please call the Paediatric Clinical Health Psychology Service to speak to Frieda Whelan or Tracey Adams on 01463 705597 or email nhshighland.phoenixcentre@nhs.net. Please note that this group is only for young people under the care of a paediatrician.

We look forward to hearing from you!
