Condition Management Programme (CMP)
The Condition Management Programme (CMP) is a 12 week programme of short, work focused, cognitive educational interventions aimed at helping clients to understand and manage their health conditions. A multidisciplinary team of health professionals work together to offer clients help and support to cope with single or multiple health conditions that are causing a barrier to work.
CMP is for people with physical or mental health conditions who claim Employment Support Allowance, Job Seekers Allowance or Universal Credit, and are motivated to make positive changes.
If you are currently in work and are receiving support from ‘WorkableNI’ or ‘Access to Work’ you can also participate in CMP.
Depending on your needs you may work with one or more of our experienced healthcare professionals which can consist of:
- Occupational Therapist
- Social Worker
- Specialist Mental Health Nurse
- Exercise Professional
The programme offers advice on:
- Dealing with stress, anxiety, low mood/depression
- Coping with pain and fatigue
- Relaxation techniques
- Communicating with confidence
- Developing a healthier lifestyle
- Exploring potential work options
You can also participate in an exercise programme specifically tailored by our CMP Exercise Professional.

Otherwise you can speak to an Employment Advisor at your local Jobs and Benefits office, or a Western Trust Health Care Professional you currently attend and they will be happy to make the referral.
