Prevention service description

The programme was originally designed as a means of supporting the wellbeing of frontline care staff and to reduce the risks associated with the high levels of stress and burnout that can be a feature in the sector. However, recognition of the role that family and friends play ‘on the frontline’ when caring for a loved one suggested that the programme might have wider applications. In response to a commission from the Mid Wales Collaborative and Hywel Dda University Health Board the programme was adapted for carers.

The programme encourages carers to develop a ‘situational awareness’ of their own resilience (and regularly consider at what level this is), and motivates them to improve this by taking part in activities that can improve their wellbeing. Underpinning this is a theoretical model drawing on a range of approaches from the fields of psychology, neuroscience and pedagogy.
