Who is Well Connected For?

Well-being is about how we think and feel such as being confident, enjoying life, being able to cope with life’s challenges. Many factors affect our well-being; housing, jobs, schools, relationships, where we live and money worries. At times, we can all feel stressed, low in mood or worried. We may also have experiences that are difficult to cope with. Sometimes we don’t feel good in ourselves and we don’t know why. Well Connected is for people who may be experiencing symptoms of stress and low mood, but it is also for people who want to feel better in themselves and in their life. As part of the Well Connected programme, staff working in the 8 areas have all participated in mental health and well-being awareness training.
