SELF-HELP TIPS

Self-help is using our own efforts to achieve our goals and solve our problems without relying on others. Self-help gives people the tools to be able to do things to help themselves. 



The Five Ways to Wellbeing are small things that we can all do to improve our emotional well-being. Why not take a look!

* During the current Lockdown period, we understand that it is not possible to visit people and we have to stay at home, isolating from everyone- apart from those we live with, in order to stay safe. Is there another way you could connect with someone? How about texting, making a phone call, or sending an email or message on social media or using video chat?
