Life Skills Online Programme

A number of places on Aware's Life Skills Online Programme have been organised exclusively for members of the INMO Income Protection Scheme as part of the Let's Talk About It initiative.

This programme is based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and designed to help participants learn more about how we think and how this can influence our actions in helpful or unhelpful ways. The programme is aimed at anyone who wishes to learn helpful ways to deal with life's challenges, including people who are experiencing mild to moderate depression, stress and/or anxiety.

About Life Skills Online

How does it work?

The Life Skills Online Programme is comprised of eight modules which you can work through online in your own time from the comfort of your own home. You benefit from the support of an Aware trained volunteer supporter for the first eight weeks, who you can choose to share progress with.

To get the most from this programme it is recommended that you complete one module per week for eight consecutive weeks. Your supporter will check in with you online to see how you're getting on with each week's module. After this eight week period, you will have access to the modules to review and reflect upon for up to 12 months.

Programme Benefits

The Life Skills Online Programme was developed by Trinity College Dublin and SilverCloud Health, and is delivered in conjunction with SilverCloud Health. The programme has been independently evaluated by Aware. The evaluation showed a statistically significant improvement in participants’ self-reported levels of anxiety and depression after completing the programme. Life Skills is also consistent with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for the treatment of depression and anxiety. NICE is an organisation which provides independent, authoritative and evidence-based guidance on the most effective ways to prevent, diagnose and treat ill-health.

Who are Aware?

Aware is the national organisation providing free support, education and information services to those impacted by anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and related mood conditions. Aware was founded in 1985 by Dr. Patrick McKeon and a small but dedicated team of volunteers, many of whom had their own personal experience with depression, or bipolar disorder. The organisation developed in response to the clear need for information, understanding and support, both for individuals who had a diagnosis of depression or bipolar as well as family members supporting a loved one. Since then, what began as one support group in Dublin has grown and flourished to become a nationwide presence offering a range of services to individuals and communities throughout Ireland.
