What will happen before the course?
If you would like to access one of our courses and choose this option on the self-referral form, before you can start the course you will be invited to book an assessment call first with one of our course facilitators. You will receive a link via text message to choose a day and time that is convenient for your call. During your call you will be asked some questions to make sure that the course is right for you and you will find out more about what the course involves and can ask any questions you might have. Please note the call will be from a withheld number.
In the week before your course is due to start, you will receive an email from our admin team .The email will provide you with the meeting link, instructions on how to join and it will contain your workbook. This email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org, please add this to your contacts so the email doesn’t get lost in your spam.
Two days before each course session you will receive a text or an email (depending on your set preference) with a set of questionnaires. The text will be sent from SHEFF IAPT, and the email will be sent from email@example.com, please add this to your contacts so the email doesn’t get lost in your spam. These questionnaires will ask you about depression and anxiety and what symptoms you have noticed over the last 2 weeks. It is really helpful to complete them each week, as they allow both you and us to keep a track of any improvements in your mood.
What will happen after the course?
We hope you will find the course helpful, but sometimes it can take time to put the techniques into practice and notice improvements in your mood. We would encourage you to keep using the techniques in your workbook and give yourself a chance to practice them after the course.
After the course has finished and you have had a number of weeks to practice your techniques. We will contact participants who are still struggling with symptoms of depression and/or anxiety to see if our service can offer any further treatment or recommend any other services/support to you. This might also include participants who do not attend the whole course. Your telephone review will be booked with a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner and will give you a chance to discuss the course, any questions and further options for treatment.
