Taking care of your mental health

Mental wellbeing means more than just not having a mental health problem; it refers to our ability to get the most out of life and cope with its challenges.

Take a look at our Mental health and wellbeing page for information about what steps you can take to look after your mental health and support a healthy mind.

Take part in a range of free activities for your mental wellbeing, or just relax and meditate at the Dragon Cafe in the City (every second Wednesday). 

Social wellbeing

Loneliness is a growing social issue which can have a significant impact on your physical and mental health.
