Being physically healthy, mentally well and staying safe are all really important. Your Personal Adviser can support you to register with basic health care services such as a GP, Dentist and even an Optician. If you have a health related appointment we will make sure you can get to it and will also try to attend with you if you feel you need some support. There are a range of services and support you can access to help to maintain or improve your general health and wellbeing as well as some more specialised services should you become unwell. Your Personal Adviser is always there to talk if you have any worries and can help you to access some help if you need it.
Sometime when people think about their health they think about physical health but your mental health and wellbeing are just as important. Being Happy and being active are 2 things we want you to feel and be.
If you feel that you are unhappy or may be struggling to cope with things, you can access a range of talking therapies through Lets Talk. You can refer yourself or ask your Personal Adviser to help you with this. Click on the following link for more information
