Information and Support Why self-manage Why self-manage? What is self-management? Self-management and self-care are crucial skills people with either a physical or mental condition can learn and adopt into daily life. Most people living with a health condition spend very little time with their health care team; the rest of the time they are managing day-to-day life with that condition on their own, or "self-managing". Self Management UK supports you with choices and tools you can use to improve your wellbeing. Self-management does not mean doing it alone. We help you make informed choices about what services and support are best for you and how to work in partnership with your healthcare team. Why should you "self-manage"? Self-management encourages you to: find out more about your condition learn new skills and tools to help you manage your health work better, and in partnership, with your healthcare team take charge of your healthcare and choose what is right for you get support from other people in a similar situation to you Self-management is suitable no matter what your long-term health condition(s); asthma, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic pain, anxiety, the list goes on. If you have more control over your condition, you have more choice. You can’t let your condition run your life.
