What is Well London doing to promote mental health and well-being?
Good mental health is the foundation for well-being and the effective functioning of individuals and communities. It is often said that there is no health without mental health.Department of Health
Well London presently has three projects to promote mental health and well-being:
- DIY Happiness - is using humour, creativity and evidence emerging from the field of positive psychology to provide practical advice and information that will increase people's ability to 'bounce back' from adversity, reduce both the physical and the psychological impact of stress, increase resilience, and build durable personal resources.
- Mental well-being Impact Assessment - enables stakeholders to identify the potential impacts on mental well-being of their proposals/projects/programmes.
- Changing minds - is recruiting and training local people with direct experience of mental ill health to deliver mental health awareness training in target communities. It will empower people to use their experience to help reduce the stigma and discrimination faced by many people with mental health problems and promote understanding of mental health and well-being.
