Where to find self-help resources

Community Member

Seeking self-help resources in general. I find plenty of reports, generic information, or story-telling. But no success in finding proper self-help resources (e.g  how to analyse and stragedies for self-help). Some under 25 target audience sites touch on questioning, being comfortable and coping but only at introduction level. I am looking for "solid resources" for self-help (not the fuzzy-feel but solid strategies to overcome issues like internal phobia, sexuality isolation, sex anxiety for older person etc). Global resources or further library psychology reading accepted.

Hi GeminiLion,

Thank you for your post. This is a great question. It is also a question that you could get a range of different answers to, as what some people find helpful may not work for others. 

It sounds like you have looked deeply into this topic which is great!  One suggestion is The Centre for Clinical Interventions - they have some interesting resources on a range of topics. 
Another option that could be more 'solid' might be some books or podcasts in the field of neuropsychology and behavioural psychology.

We are sure the community here will jump in soon with their own suggestions. In the meantime, if you ever wanted to talk some more about this, the Beyond Blue Support Service is available on 1300 22 4636, or you can reach us online via our webchat: https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/  

Best of luck in finding something that 'clicks' with you! We are here for you along the way šŸ™‚

Kind regards
