Wellbeing Service

Our wellbeing service supports people across Cornwall to help build resilience and reduce the onset of mental health problems by focusing on supporting individuals to move forward in their recovery and achieve positive outcomes.

Current services

We believe that nobody should face a mental health problem alone.

Our wellbeing service offers a range of face to face and online, recovery focused groups and activities for people that are struggling with mental health difficulties.
We work with people to support them in achieving their goals and engaging in their local communities. The service also provides social contact, opportunities for friendship, and access to peer and professional support.

Five Ways to Wellbeing

Our wellbeing services are based around the Five Ways To Wellbeing.

Evidence suggests there are 5 steps we can all take to improve our mental health. We try to incorporate these Five Ways To Wellbeing when planning and developing our services.

The following steps have been researched and developed by the New Economics Foundation.

Connect
There is strong evidence that indicates that feeling close to, and valued by, other people is a fundamental human need and one that contributes to functioning well in the world. Connect with your family, friends, the people around you. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.

Be active
Regular physical activity is associated with lower rates of depression and anxiety across all age groups. Exercising makes you feel good. Step outside, take a walk, find an activity that you enjoy and make it part of your life.

Take notice
Reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden awareness. Be curious, savour the moment. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling.

Learn
Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life. Try something new, learning new things will increase confidence as well as being fun.

Give
Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Do something nice for a friend or stranger, smile, thank someone, volunteer your time. Look out as well as in.

Our wellbeing service is funded through the generosity of our community through community activities and through Mind and other charitable Grants alongside support from NHS Kernow.

Our mental health radio show

“A Space To Speak Your Mind” is our radio show and podcast made by people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, in association with Source FM, the community radio station in Falmouth and Penryn.

It also airs on CHBN in Truro and Radio St Austell Bay. Listen to the Podcasts on Spotify now. Also available on Apple Podcasts.
