ACTivate Your Life – Deaf Online Wellbeing Course (BSL)

The BSL version of the ACTivate your life,  a free, self-help online course for people who would like some support with their emotional and mental wellbeing. We know that easily accessible resources to support deaf people are limited. You will be able to discover new ways of coping with everyday stress, anxiety and low mood.

“ACTivate Your Life” is designed for all adults across Wales aged 16+ who want to understand their thoughts and feelings and to learn practical skills that will enable them to act in ways that will make their life more fulfilling.

Developed by Psychologist Dr Neil Frude, the free course consists of four forty-minute online videos. There is no requirement to subscribe. More details about the videos can be found here.

ACT 1

Deaf wellbeing – You Are Not Your Mind

Learn about how your Mind works – and how it often works against you. But by taking more control, you can stop your Mind spoiling things for you.

ACT 2

Facing up to Life – Accept what you Cannot Change

We often make great efforts to avoid or change things that can’t be changed, and this can make things worse for us. It’s often better to use Acceptance.

Mindfulness enables us to focus more on the present – and the benefits of this are extremely powerful. Learn how to practice the art of ‘just noticing’.
