Warrington Wellbeing Service
Wellbeing is about having a good quality of life; it can be described as feeling healthy, happy or being able to cope with the problems that can happen in life. There are many different issues that can affect your wellbeing; worries about money, feeling stuck in a rut, or maybe wanting help to change, for example quit smoking.
The Warrington Wellbeing Team – what we offer
The team can help you get the information and support you need to start feeling back on track. The team may be able to give you some personal advice, or they may help you to get advice from an expert. Warrington Wellbeing understands each person is an individual who needs tailored support, so you will get an individual plan to help you manage your situation.

- The team cannot provide emergency mental health support. If you need help right now, please see the urgent help section below or there is more information on http://www.happyoksad.org.uk/

- The team are not legal experts but they may be able to refer you to a professional who can help.
What will happen when I see a member of the Warrington Wellbeing Team?
When you first talk to a Warrington Wellbeing worker, they will ask you to describe the issues you want help with. Depending on the situation, you could get all the information and advice you need at this point. If you have more than one issue, or you find it hard to describe what kind of help you want, you will be offered a full assessment. This will be a conversation with a worker, who will talk to you about your life and ask some questions to find out how they and other services can help you.
You will be given a plan of support that will outline all the help and advice that is available. The worker will arrange to meet with you for up to 8 appointments, to work through this plan together.
