Would you like to turn your life around? Feeling stuck?
Every year World Mental Health Day is celebrated on 10th October. These are a few ideas of things you can do to improve your mental wellbeing:
- Connect – talk and listen, be there, feel connected
- Be active – do what you can, enjoy what you do and move your mood
- Take notice – Remember the simple things that give you joy
- Keep learning – embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself
- Give – your time, your words, your presence
If you wanted to explore how to improve your mental wellbeing in more detail, you can make an appointment with our Social Prescriber, Emily Fitzgerald by ringing reception. This service is free to all patients. Social Prescribers work with patients in a holistic and broad way addressing issues that don’t tend to be strictly medical, but can make you feel unwell i.e. loneliness, debts, housing worries, help to live independently at home, search for meaningful activities. Patients and Social Prescribers work together over a short period of time to identify services and activities that best match the patients’ needs and through conversations and information build patients’ confidence to access services.
