What is Common Foundations?

Common Foundations is for people who have difficulty managing emotions and in interpersonal relationships. It focuses on building skills and coping strategies to make these problems more manageable.

Please be aware we may address some topics such as emotional distress, self-harm or suicidal feelings. Whilst we only talk about these things in a caring way so as to help people overcome them, we know these issues can be triggering at some times. We ask that you consider your own readiness for this and think in advance about how to manage any strong feelings that may come up.

These webinars are delivered by Oxleas' Lived Experience Practitioners (someone who has lived experience of mental health problems, and mental health services) and Health Care Professionals.  They are a mix of discussions and presentations with a structured Q&A section.
