Welcome to Elament

Mental health is about how people think and feel. How we think and feel affects our overall health and wellbeing and quality of life. Many factors influence mental health - housing, jobs, schools, transport, the environment - as well as the way we live our lives.

Important Notice

Due to the current and changing guidance provided by the government on COVID-19 please be aware that services and groups may be subject to change at very short notice. Please contact services, supports, projects and groups directly for up to date information.
