Self Management Programme for Children age 9-19

What is
Children’s Health Scotland now offers an online SelfManagement Service – SMS:CONNECT – for children and
young people living with long-term health conditions.
Self-Management means improving the relationship you have with your health and wellbeing and building your confidence
and self-esteem. By taking part in SMS:CONNECT you are taking steps towards increasing your confidence and selfesteem, accessing information, and developing skills that can
help you cope better with your health condition.
We are offering an online service that you can connect with at home and that will help you connect with other children and young people with health conditions.
SMS:CONNECT includes two online self-management programmes: one for children aged 9-12, and one for young
people aged 13-17. Groups will have between 6 – 10 people and two facilitators work with each group.
