Self Help Access In Routine Primary-Care


What Is SHARP?

Self-help Access in Routine Primary Care (SHARP) was a project designed to enable primary care practitioners to support people with mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression to access to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based self-help information. It also involved a training programme for practitioners to enable them to:

  • To understand the Five Areas Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model and how it is used in the self-help leaflets.
  • To identify people who are suitable for guided self-help.
  • To engage people in the guided self-help approach.
  • To identify appropriate self-help materials for an individual’s problems and goals.
  • To support people to make use of the self-help materials.
