It’s World Wellbeing Week and we want to ask the question:
What is Wellbeing?
The literal definition of wellbeing according to Google, is –
1. the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.
We understand that circumstances, trauma and our mental health can make our wellbeing difficult to maintain and manage sometimes. Often, we prioritise our physical wellbeing, and find it easier to notice when it’s worsening. We then link in with various health professionals to get this checked.
However, when it comes to our mental wellbeing, we often don’t talk about it. Often we brush it off and think “I’ll be fine tomorrow”. Please reach out in these situations, whether that be to your GP, a crisis line, family, friends or First Point. People want to help.
Poor wellbeing can come in waves. When you experience poor wellbeing, whether that be physical or mental, it can feel like a storm crashing over you. If you are socially isolated these waves can seem more intense and cause more distress.
At First Point Dorset our support workers work with you to help your wellbeing. We address this in a comprehensive way which helps you move forward. It’s done by working with you at your own pace. First Point can support you with a range of problems and issues that develop in life. These can often impact us negatively.
We help with:
- housing concerns
- threatened homelessness
- social isolation
- ill mental health
- maximising income
- budget management, and so much more.
Each one of these things can have a massive impact on someone’s wellbeing. It’s important to access support when you need it, before they become overwhelming. It’s easy to feel no one has your back in this but we can support in empowering you and building your confidence to tackle these situations.
