Evaluation of self-management training for people with severe and enduring mental health problems

We are assessing the effectiveness of a service-user designed self-management training programme in Wales.

Self-management allows people to develop planning and problem solving skills. Setting their own goals, people learn to plan the small steps to achieve those goals and tackle problems relating to achieving those goals.

We want to find out what effect the self-management skills that people learn have on their lives. We followed participants up for a year and asked about their wellbeing, functional living skills, and goal achievement. We are also assessing the cost-effectiveness of the training.

The data analysis is underway.
