Ben is a charity dedicated to supporting those who work, or have worked, in the automotive sector. SMMT has worked with Ben for many years and has supported them in a number of projects including the annual Ben Ball
Now Ben is launching a new tool called SilverCloud to help support those who may be in need of mental health assistance. Seeing as this is Mental Health Awareness Week we would like to encourage you to use this tool if you are currently struggling and to share it with others who may be silently struggling as well.
What is SilverCloud
SilverCloud is a digital platform containing different programmes to help you manage and improve your mental health and wellbeing.
The programmes cover topics such as anxiety, depression, and stress, as well as money worries, sleep, and resilience. Each programme has a range of interactive tools such as videos, activities, quizzes, audio guides as well as a personal online support journal.
How does it work?
SilverCloud uses an evidence based, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach which focuses on the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. It can help you develop positive coping strategies, helping you to better deal with life’s challenges.
You can select programmes and use SilverCloud on your own (self-help) or you can choose to be supported by one of Ben’s team as you work through your chosen programme(s).
Who can use SilverCloud?
It’s free for anyone who works, or has worked, in the automotive industry.
How do I sign up to use SilverCloud?
Once you have signed up you can download the app from your device’s app store to use on your tablet or smartphone.
