Shout's 'Little book of coping skills'

We’ve put together Shout 85258’s ‘Little book of coping skills’ as seen from the things our texters tell Shout Volunteers they’ll do to help them feel better after a conversation.

Whether you’re feeling anxious, stressed, worried, overwhelmed or low, this booklet has plenty of tips and techniques you can try to help you feel calmer and refer back to whenever you need them.
