Self-management and self-care are crucial skills people with either a physical or mental condition or a carer need.
On average, people living with a health condition spend just 3 hours per year with their health care team; the rest of the time they are managing day to day life with that condition or their own – or self-managing.
Self management UK educates you in the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to improve your wellbeing. Self-management does not mean doing it alone. We help you make informed choices about what services and support you want and need and how to work in partnership with your healthcare professionals.
