Self-help videos

LIFE! …and how to survive it.

This YouTube channel has been set up to help us get through a period where we find ourselves feeling stressed, overwhelmed and needing some help.

NHS Lothian has created the channel, and the videos were written and presented by the East Lothian Psychological Therapies Service. There are 9 playlists, each one discussing different aspects of life, stress and overcoming difficult times. The team designed the videos in the playlists to all be only a few minutes long, so you have the chance to watch them while they’re in the bath, lying in bed, sitting on the bus, or anywhere that’s easiest for you. Whenever you’re most likely to get a quiet 10 minutes to yourself, it is a good time to set aside for coming to this channel.
