Project Uplift is a program that teaches the skills for managing and improving stress, mental health, and quality of life. The goal of Project UPLIFT is to empower people with epilepsy to improve their own mental health through mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral skills.
Our thoughts and activities affect our mood, stress, and anxiety. By attending to our thoughts, we can learn which thoughts affect our mental health. By learning to challenge these thoughts or let them go, we are empowered to improve our own mental health. UPLIFT increases participation in pleasant activities to improve mental health.
UPLIFT is delivered in a group setting, through 8 weekly telephone sessions with an UPLIFT trained facilitator. Methods taught include challenging thoughts, behavioral activation, coping, problem-solving, and mindfulness. You will receive a participant manual and CD.
