Making an Action Plan
An action plan can assist you to understand early warning signs of potential relapses or feelings of not being well. It can allow you to put some coping mechanisms in place as quickly as possible.
The earlier you pay attention to what’s wrong, the better your chances of getting back on track, and staying well.
Allow yourself to ask for help. Get advice from the people you trust, such as a GP, a counsellor, family or a friend.
You are often the expert when it comes to identifying the support or changes you need and how to manage your triggers for poor mental health. The plan will work better when it is written by you: expressing your own personal choice, reflecting your voice and your personal experience, needs and wants.
