Welcome to Wellbeing in Action and thank you for trusting us to give you support when you need it. We have a range of professional services and peer support projects that may be useful to you. The first, and hardest, step is to reach out and just talk. We don't underestimate how difficult this can feel. Commonly people think:
"I don't want to bother people or worry them"
"There's no point, nothing they can do to help"
"I'm too embarrassed"
"I'm frightened of what will happen if I tell someone"
"Don't know if I can trust them"
"I don't know where to start"
"They'll think I'm stupid"
"I haven't got the energy to speak"
"Go away - my life may as well be over"
Talking literally saves lives. Whether you choose to chat online (anonymously if you prefer), use our 'Agony Aunt' problem message service, join an online peer support group or get brave enough to come to see someone in person - use our menu on the right to explore what might be right for you.

Something on your mind you'd like to share, get off your chest or get some impartial advice? For non-crisis related worries and niggles, we're here to listen and give you some thoughts to help you work your way through the dilemma. We receive your message and will respond by your chosen method of contact (tell us on the form below), usually within 24 hours, though we cannot guarantee the time it takes to respond on busy days.
It's good to talk, share and listen.
This service isn't suitable for crisis situations as we do not provide 24 cover.
