Wellness Self-Management for the COVID-19 Crisis
Many practitioners and recipients are familiar with Wellness Self-Management (WSM), a curriculum-based clinical practice designed to assist adults to effectively manage serious mental health problems. WSM lessons focus on recovery, mental health wellness, relapse prevention and more.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, six new WSM lessons have been developed which can be used remotely (or face-to-face) in individual and group meetings. The topics are:
Focus on the virus, symptoms and how to protect yourself
- Focus on stress, learn why it is important to identify our worries, and why this is especially important now
Focus on ways of coping that may be helpful to you, and considering your own coping plan
Focus on social support, why it is important – especially now, and steps you can take to make sure that you have the social support that you want
Focus on having a healthy lifestyle generally, things to do to stay healthy during this crisis, and the connection between a healthy lifestyle and mental health recovery
