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!



Bake, knit a heart, make someone a cuppa or even cut the neighbours grass.


Keep learning

Learn how to fix a bike, cook a meal, play an instrument or even a new language.


Be active

Walk the dog, dance in the bedroom or join a sports group.


Take notice

Sit outside, look around and listen



Spend some quality time with a friend or relative. Enjoy talking to each other and enjoy their company.

* 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?
