We are running a pilot of the Hope Programme, an innovative new online mental health course, dedicated to on-call firefighters and supporting the wellbeing of our beneficiaries.

The free, six-week online group self-management programme helps participants to feel more in control and more resilient. Each week it covers topics like: managing stress, smarter goal setting, gratitude, character strengths, physical activity, eating well, coping with fatigue, practicing mindfulness, communication and relationships.

The programme includes quizzes, worksheets, audio and video materials, interactive activities and social networking via email and forums. Participants are supported throughout by trained facilitators.

The programme can be accessed from PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone and can be taken entirely at your own pace.

While all the slots have been filled for the pilot on this occasion, we’ll keep you updated on any future mental health opportunities and programmes available.
