Emotional Wellbeing Services
Look after your mental health
A useful definition of emotional wellbeing is offered by the Mental Health Foundation: ‘A positive sense of wellbeing which enables an individual to be able to function in society and meet the demands of everyday life; people in good mental health have the ability to recover effectively from illness, change or misfortune.’
Our Advisers can provide information, support and signposting to overcome some of the factors which may have a negative impact on your emotional wellbeing, such as poor housing, economic disadvantage, serious illness, bullying, abuse, bereavement or isolation. We can help with volunteering opportunities in a wide range of settings that could assist you to build self esteem, confidence and combat isolation.
