Mental wellbeing

One in four adults will experience poor mental health at some point in their lifetime. There are ways to help build and strengthen your resilience and have a positive outlook on life.

Taking care of your mental wellbeing

The 'five ways to wellbeing' focus on five easy ways to help look after your mental wellbeing. They are:

  1. Connect - talk and listen, be there, feel connected, make social connections with others.

  2. Be active - do what you can, enjoy what you do, move your mood. Get active to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

  3. Take notice - remember the simple things that give you joy. Find out how to take notice on the mindfulness pages from NHS Choices.

  4. Learn - embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself. There are many learning opportunities in the county.

  5. Give - your time, your words, your presence. Consider searching for  volunteering opportunities in the local area.    

Research shows that positive actions that impact in our day to day life can add up to 7-12 years onto your life and make you feel good day-to-day.  

Build the ' five ways to wellbeing' into your daily life to improve your wellbeing.

Please note: The five ways to wellbeing are not substitutes for professional support. If you are worried about the mental health of someone you care about or have concerns about your own mental health, you need to make an appointment with your GP.
