Social, Emotional, Mental Health & Wellbeing


Wellbeing is about both feeling good and functioning well in your day to day life. The things that we do and the way that we think affects our wellbeing. There are five ways that we can boost our wellbeing:

  1. Connect… with people around you, with family,friends, colleagues and neighbours, at home, work, school, college and in your local community
  2. Be Active … go for a walk or a run. Step outside, cycle, play a game, dance, garden. Exercising makes you feel good
  3. Take Notice…be curious, catch sight of the beautiful, remark on the unusual, be aware of the world around you, what you are feeling – savour the moment
  4. Keep Learning … Try something new, discover a new interest, sign up for a course, learn to cook, paint, draw or play an instrument, challenge yourself
  5. Give …. Do something nice for a friend or a stranger, thank someone, smile, volunteer your time, get involved in your community


Improving wellbeing is proven to help with our physical health, our performance at school, college and work, improving our quality of life
