It is common for people to take steps to maintain their physical health, whether it is exercise, healthy eating or simply brushing their teeth. Likewise, when people are feeling physically unwell or under the weather they go to their local pharmacy, GP, or call NHS 111.

However, often people do not give the same focus when it comes to looking after their own mental wellbeing. We also know people are less likely to receive the support they need when it comes to their mental wellbeing – whether it be confiding in a friend or speaking to a professional.

When was the last time you took care of your mental wellbeing? To make a start you can make a pledge, using the ‘5 ways to wellbeing’ as your guide.

Sometimes caring can make this difficult but with our services such as our volunteer sitters, group support, gym membership and Carers Support Line - we are here to help.
