Centre for Clinical Interventions (CCI): Self-help workbooks and modules
The Centre for Clinical Interventions (CCI) has produced resources for consumers and healthcare professionals to assist in providing interventions for mental health problems such as depression, bipolar, social anxiety, panic, self-esteem, procrastination, perfectionism, and eating disorders. Some of these resources have been developed so that they can be worked through by people dealing with particular problems, while others have been produced as part of CCI’s treatment and training services. The resources provided on this website aim to provide general information about various mental health problems, as well as, techniques that focus on a cognitive behavioural approach to managing difficulties.
Looking After Yourself
If you experience a condition that is affecting your mental health and are looking for specific information about different types of problems, then please visit the self help resources section to see if there are any information packages relevant to you.
Information packages are available for conditions such as depression, panic, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, and disordered eating.
Looking After Others
Nearly half the adult population will experience anxiety or depression or some other psychological problem at some time during their life. This means that it is highly likely that someone you care about will need your support; it could be your partner, child, parents, sibling, other family member friend, or colleague. Looking after someone can be very rewarding, but can also be challenging. It is important that you take care of yourself and we would recommend accessing appropriate services to support you as you look after others. In Looking After Others section of our website you will find a range of information sheets about psychological disorders, along with the schedule of information sessions that we provide at CCI.
If you are a Mental Health Practitioner or a Doctor and you are interested in cognitive behavioural approaches to psychological interventions, then the resources provided in For Clinicians section may be useful in the delivery of mental health services to consumers. It is beneficial to have some background knowledge of cognitive behavioural therapy before using the manuals or information sheets/worksheets so that you are best able to use them in practice.
