Get Help From Our Wellbeing Service

If you are finding life a struggle Bluesci can support you. We recognise that good Mental Health and Wellbeing are an integral part of every bodies life and that everyday things can improve our mental health, wellbeing, levels of happiness and life satisfaction.


These include:

1: Connect
Developing relationships with your family, friends, people at work, your neighbours and people in communities will enrich your life and bring you support. Your local library is a great source of information about activities and groups in your area.

2: Be active 
Playing sports, hobbies such as gardening or dancing, or just a daily stroll will make you feel good and maintain mobility and fitness. It provides fresh air, the opportunity to get out and about, social contacts and releases ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain.

3: Take notice, be curious
We all lead busy lives, but taking time to appreciate your surroundings, enjoy everyday moments as well as the unusual and reflecting on them helps you to appreciate what matters to you.

4: Learn
Fixing a bike, learning an instrument, cooking, gardening – the challenge and satisfaction brings fun and confidence.


5: Give 
Helping friends and strangers links your happiness to a wider community and is very rewarding. It makes them feel good and you too. Volunteering is a one way to do this. It is a great way to meet new people and gain new experiences.
