Free stress control classes available online

The people of Lanarkshire can take advantage of a free online stress control resource that provides advice and support and helps deal with anxiety and stress during these challenging times.

Stress Control is a six-session class developed in Scotland and now run around the world. It teaches Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) skills to help deal with common problems such as anxiety, depression, panicky feelings, poor sleep and poor wellbeing.

NHS Lanarkshire psychological services staff run free Stress Control classes across the 10 localities all-year round. However, the Covid-19 pandemic means these classes can’t be held at present.

So, because you can’t go to Stress Control, Stress Control is coming to you.

Dr Jim White, the creator of Stress Control, is running free online sessions beginning on Monday 13 April. Each session will be streamed twice a day – at 2pm, repeated at 8:30pm – on Mondays and Thursdays. All of these classes will be led by Dr White, a consultant clinical psychologist and world-renowned expert in common mental health problems.

Dr Simon Stuart, clinical psychologist with NHS Lanarkshire, said: “Stress Control has already benefited thousands of people across Lanarkshire. In these very challenging times, it’s more valuable than ever that people can continue to get access to this kind of high-quality intervention. Everyone will find something to benefit them from Dr White’s excellent idea.”

Dr Gary Tanner, NHS Lanarkshire’s director of psychological services, added: “With people currently unable to attend Stress Control groups in person, these virtual classes, streamed twice-weekly via YouTube across the UK, will help people find ways to manage stress, anxiety, and low mood. Each class is supported by a series of useful booklets.”

For more information go to http://stresscontrol.org, where you can learn more about the classes, find all the dates, and get the link to the YouTube channel where the sessions will be streaming. Each class runs for 90 minutes, with a 10-minute break in the middle, and there are six in total.

Stress Control online is likely to be a useful source of help, advice and support for everyone in Lanarkshire during these challenging times.

Advice for managing Coronavirus at home

10 Top Tips

1. Early recognition – any new (or onset within the last 7 days) continuous cough or fever is possible Coronavirus.

2. Don’t panic – most people will be able to self-manage without contacting their GP or 111. Everyone needs to follow simple steps to reduce their symptoms and avoid infecting others. DO NOT go to the GP practice or A&E.

3. Get educated – NHS inform https://www.nhsinform.scot/ will help you assess your symptoms. It is updated daily so has the most up to date advice as things keep changing. If you are short of breath (i.e. not able to walk upstairs or are having difficulty speaking in sentences) then phone your GP practice or 111. Only phone 999 if you feel it is an emergency.

4. Self-isolate – stop the virus spreading by self-isolating for 7 days from the onset of symptoms and follow information on NHS inform on how to do this. Effective self-isolation will stop your friends and family getting infected

5. Rest, paracetamol and fluids are crucial especially with fever – aim for a minimum of 10x 300ml mugs of fluid a day. Avoid alcohol. Water, diluting juice or fruit juice are ideal. Aim for regular clear or mildly yellow urine and to be able to pee every 4 hours except when asleep at night. If you have not passed urine in over 4 hours, have dark yellow urine, feel thirsty or dizzy on standing then there is a high chance you are dehydrated and you need to drink lots more as a priority. https://www.nhsinform.scot/campaigns/hydration

6. Food is less important than fluids – if able to eat then have lots of fruit and vegetables as these will help your immune system fight the infection.

7. Stop certain medications – some drugs are unsafe when you are unwell, especially ones to lower your blood pressure, and anti-inflammatories. Look at the ‘Sick Day Rules’ card for more information (below). Restart these medications 48 hours after you are eating and drinking normally.

8. Get support – call family/friends/community members and ask them to deliver supplies. People in the same house as you do not need to self-isolate if they have no symptoms.

9. For children follow advice from the excellent When Should I Worry Website http://www.whenshouldiworry.com/resources/When%20should%20I%20worry-Booklet_Scotland-with%20111%20service_2016.pdf

10. You can return to work after 7 days if you’re improving but do not need to be symptom free. Contact the GP practice if you are not improving after 7 days.
