Changes to life circumstances, such as housing and finances, can have a significant impact on both your mental and physical health.
Our Wellbeing services aims to reduce the impact these challenges can have on your quality of life.
We offer support for practical, situational and social challenges including housing, money worries, drug and alcohol misuse, loneliness, social isolation and general wellness, such as diet, healthy living and sleep.
If you feel that you or someone you know are an immediate danger, please contact 999
Our mental health teams and services, including Talking Therapies, are available if you need support.
You can also find resources and guides on our website to help you if you need more advice.
We provide friendly support and advice to improve your daily life and wellbeing. We can guide you to the right support if you feel that you’re struggling because of a change to your circumstances, such as:
- Housing issues
- Money worries
- Drug and alcohol misuse
- Loneliness & social isolation
- General wellness and healthy living
It may be that you’ve already been discharged by your GP after looking for help, and that you haven’t been referred into a mental health service and you feel that you still need support.
We offer one-to-one sessions over the phone, online support, wellbeing workshops as well as supported signposting to local services and advise
