The YOURhealth team is made up of qualified NHS professionals, including Social Prescribers and Health and Wellbeing Coaches, who are on hand to support, motivate and signpost you to the most relevant and appropriate help for your individual needs.
The expert team will spend up to an hour with you at every meeting, and can meet with you weekly or fortnightly, in a way that works around your life.
Some of the topics the team cover include:
- Depression and low mood
- Bereavement, loss and grief
- Sleep Hygiene

- and much more
The team also offer an innovative service delivered by their Health and Wellbeing Coaches, which play a role in the wider Community Mental Health transformation programme. The coaches make sure that anyone who is struggling with their mental health and who may benefit from low to moderate level interventions can have a voice, be involved in their own care, and understand what other avenues of support may be available to them.
