Most people have experienced the ups and downs of life. Living is made up of both positive and negative events, and subsequently we alternate between pleasure and displeasure. If you are feeling sad, unsuccessful, scared, angry, or have other negative emotions which dominate your everyday life, remember that it is fully possible to reverse this negative cycle. You need an individual approach tailored to your specific circumstances, as what is useful for one person may often be unhelpful for another. This program will advice you on how to handle your own issues, as well as how you can help others when they´re struggling.

Mental health problems are more common than you might think. About half of the population will at some point during their lifetime experience serious mental health problems. Fortunately, there are effective and well-tested treatment methods, which may help resolve the vast majority of mental health struggles.
