What is it? 

The Calming Anxiety and Boosting Mood (CABM) course is a psychological educational course run within a group setting. If you are aged 16 or older and registered with a Worcestershire GP, you can self-refer to attend a course. The CABM course is designed to help you understand and recognise low mood, anxiety and panic and help you learn skills and techniques to combat it.


What does the programme involve?

The course consists of six sessions. Each session lasts for two hours and they are delivered weekly. There will be some group discussions, however, it is up to you how much or how little you choose to say in front of the group. There is homework involved as part of the CBT approach and in order to get the full benefit of the course, it is recommended that you complete the tasks outside of the course.
