There was a lot of interest in my previous post Mental health worksheets galore, so I thought I’d do a follow-up post with some mental health workbooks.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUfAD): workbooks for generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD, OCD, panic disorder, social phobia, and specific phobias
- Dartmouth University: Integrated CBT patient workbook
- Hamilton Family Health Team Social Anxiety Group Participation Workbook: This is another patient manual for group therapy that’s laid out in a way that makes it pretty easy to use on your own

- NHS South London and Maudsley behavioural activation booklets: this series of booklets is focused on the behavioural activation aspect of CBT for depression
- Think CBT Workbook
- University of Michigan CBT Group Program for Depression Adult Patient Manual: This manual is intended to be used as part of a group program, but it’s clearly laid out and has exercises you can work on on your own. There’s also an anxiety group manual.

Are there any resources you’ve come across that you would add to this list?
