The Self Care Forum is a charity which aims to further the reach of self care and embed it into everyday life. Self Care is the actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness.
It also aims to change the attitudes and behaviours of patients, practitioners and the general public and support the rational use of products and services to improve health and wellbeing whilst reducing pressure on the health service. It offers self care strategies through the Royal College of GPs.
