Wellbeing is important to us all: we want to feel good about ourselves, to get the most out of our lives and feel connected to other people. ‘Wellbeing’ means feeling more than just happy and confident, it means feeling able to cope when things get tough in our lives or when our physical health suffers.
Wellbeing Norfolk & Waveney provide a range of support for people with common mental health and emotional issues, such as low mood, depression or stress.
We work with you to help you make the necessary changes to improve your wellbeing and quality of life.
Our services are free and are available to people aged 16 and over living in Norfolk & Waveney. People can self-refer themselves to the service in different ways.
Services we provide include:
• One-to-one support
• Online Guided Self Help
• Self-help advice
• Services for young people
• Relationship counselling for couples, individuals and families
• Courses to help you achieve a better sense of wellbeing
• Peer support and access to social groups in your area

• Helping you find other support for issues affecting your wellbeing such as debt, housing, employment
I’d like to highlight the Community Development Team – my team! We offer a programme of weekly social events based on the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ approach. These are a set of evidence-based recommendations which, when followed, can improve your mental health and wellbeing.
In the current circumstances, all our social events are being held online.
Last, the Community Development Team also delivers a Wellbeing Community Champion Training for people who care about where they live and work and understand the importance of talking about mental health and well-being.
This training is for anyone, but especially useful for organisations such as schools, businesses, charitable or community organisations. For more information look here or or if you’d like to organise a session please me Paola.Colombo@nsft.nhs.uk
