Congratulations on taking the first step to improving your emotional wellbeing!
Your mental health is important. Some mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety, are common. If you have such an illness, it's important to get the right treatment from your GP or specialist services such as NAVIGO
At Lifestyle Services, we are keen to promote your mental wellbeing and will guide you through some techniques to help improve your confidence, self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation. Low self-esteem can make it hard to try new things or complete tasks, such as starting a new hobby or completing a job application. This can stop you from living your life the way you want, and lead to frustration and depression over time. We all have times when we lack confidence and don’t feel good about ourselves. But when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our lives.
Your Lifestyle Practitioner can offer you direct support and may be able to link you into community groups or signpost you to appropriate support. You don’t have to suffer alone.
If you've had thoughts of self-harming or are feeling suicidal, contact someone immediately such as your GP, a friend, a relative or someone else you can trust.
