5 Ways to Wellbeing Workshops
These workshops explore each of the five ways to wellbeing:
- Connect – with the people around you.
- Be active – find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life.
- Keep learning – learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and new confidence.
- Give – even the smallest act can count, whether it's a smile, a thank you or a kind word.
- Be mindful – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
There is an opportunity for a 20 minute 1-2-1 support session with a wellbeing worker to put together an action plan to help you access the benefits of adopting a ‘5 Ways to Well-being’ approach.
We recommend you attend all 5 sessions of the rolling programme to feel the full benefits.
Peer Support Groups
Peer support is where people use their own experiences to help others. It focuses on positive strengths not weaknesses and works towards wellbeing.
Come and meet others, learn about what helps improve and maintain good emotional wellbeing.
Peer support groups are currently available fortnightly in (click blue links to book on Eventbrite):
You might not feel ready to join our ‘5 ways to wellbeing workshops’. We can still help. We are working with a specialist health coach from Oasis-Talk who can help you feel ready to become involved.
You may want to continue your wellbeing journey through volunteering. There is a range of opportunities across Southern Brooks provisions. Volunteering roles can be at a level you are confident with fulfilling, for example, you can help a wellbeing worker with running a workshop or support an individual to get to a peer support group. As a volunteer, you will be offered training to help you in the role you choose to undertake.
