This year's Self Management Week will take place from Monday 1st - Friday 5th October 2018
Self Management Week takes place every year to raise awareness of and showcase the huge benefits self management can bring to people’s lives.
This year the theme for Self Management Week 2018 is
Self management is about people living with long term conditions being in ‘the driving seat’. It supports people to live their lives better, on their terms. Self management is not a replacement for services, it does not mean managing alone. It is a journey with the person at the centre, feeling able to take control of their life and conditions in partnership with support and services.
We want to take the opportunity throughout Self Management Week 2018 to celebrate our experiences of those who have embraced self management in their lives and those supporting and championing self management approaches in what they do.
To make a truly valuable impact and get people talking about Self Management we want you to get involved and we want to know about it.
Find out about the different ways to celebrate together with us and raise the profile of self management by downloading our ‘How to Get Involved’ document below.
