Free Mental Health Workbooks

free mental health workbooks & worksheets

There are a lot of excellent mental health resources out there, and quite a few of them are actually free. Here are some of the good mental health workbooks and worksheets that I’ve come across. They’re based on therapeutic approaches that have proven to be effective.

This page is updated regularly, but the availability of these resources is subject to change without notice.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy identifies fusion with thoughts and resistance to uncomfortable inner experiences as key sources of distress. The therapy works on increasing psychological flexibility and choosing committed actions based on values.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an evidence-based treatment for a variety of different mental illnesses. A key element of CBT is identifying evidence to challenge cognitive distortions. This can sometimes be difficult to do without working with a therapist, but there are plenty of self-help resources to help you try on your own.

  • Managing Depression: A Self-Help Skills Resource for Women Living with Depression During Pregnancy, After Delivery, and Beyond
  • NHS inform: self-help guides for anxiety, depression, and other topics

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT is very skill-based, and while it’s used most often for borderline personality disorder, many of the skills can also be useful to people with other mental health issues.

  1. Thank you for sharing these. They were so helpful to me when I first started at my mental health facility back in 2015. I hope you don’t mind, but I want to share this with other readers as they would be able to help them as well! πŸ™‚

  2. The DBT Workbook is on its way to my house! Thanks for listing these. I’m glad the book I chose made your list.
