How can the Wellness Service help you?
The Wellness Service can help support your mental health and wellbeing through managing your emotional, physical and/or your social wellbeing. We can guide you through behaviour change using a number of different approaches including health coaching.
Utilising health coaching techniques will help identify which area of wellbeing has the biggest impact on your mental health.
Wellness staff would then work with you to create a plan to improve that particular element. For example, physical wellbeing could be focusing on increasing exercise levels or improving lifestyle factors such as healthy eating, which would then have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing.

Benefits of good mental health
Looking after your mental health is just as important as looking after your physical health as our mental health and physical health go together and are inter linked. This means that having mental health problems can come with physical symptoms just as having physical problems can affect our mental health. For example if someone suffers from depression then they may have trouble getting to sleep which can leave them feeling fatigued and put them at risk of serious conditions such as obesity, coronary heart disease and diabetes.
The benefits of practising to improve mental health are, but not limited too:
- Reduction in anxiety.
- Reduced risk of depression
- Improved moods.
- Improved productivity and engagement
- Improved sleep
- Clearer thinking
- A greater sense of calm.
- Increased confidence.
- Improvements in relationships.
- Build resilience
