Online self-help program: Moodpep

Are you on this website because you suffer from mood problems? If yes, we are sorry to hear that. Suffering from mood problems is very unpleasant, but fortunately there is something you can do about it, with some help. If you have the motivation and the time, you can now work on this problem yourself. The purpose of Moodpep is to help you cope better with daily struggles and to improve your mood.

Moodpep consists of 8 lessons, based on techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The program focuses on 4 important components: starting new activities, learning to relax more effectively, changing negative thoughts and working on your own, specific goals. The self-help program can be completed online (on a computer or tablet) at any time and place that suits you. Once a week, you will have telephone or online contact with a coach who will check how you are doing. Through a series of lessons you will learn various skills by reading information and completing assignments. The program can be completed in 6-8 weeks and requires a time investment of 1-2 hours a week. We expect that participating in this program will make you feel better!

Does a self-help program work?
Research has shown that self-help programs work really well for the majority of people. The most important thing is that you realise that change is possible. Much of what you think and do is an automatic response which has become a habit. Although breaking these kind of habits is not easy, it is certainly possible! To attain this goal, you need to invest some time and practise. In a way, it is no different from sports: you can develop fitness and agility through training. And that is exactly what we will be doing in this program!

The online program is offered in a secure environment.
