What does well-being mean?

The term ‘well-being’ means to be in a state of health, general happiness or comfort. It can be used to describe how satisfied someone is with their life as a whole, how in control they feel and how they function on a personal and social level. Feelings of well-being are important to the overall health of a person, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life.

Andover Mind well-being centres

Our well-being centres offer a relaxed and friendly base, where a range of services are provided to support people with mental health problems. We offer help to all who need it. This could range from aiding people in their recovery from a serious mental health issue to providing advice, services and information to those wishing to prevent the onset of a mental health condition from starting.

How we can help

The services we offer are tailored to each individual. We provide care and support to help increase self-esteem, manage mental distress and promote self-management. We have a wide range of opportunities and resources available to help people achieve their goals. This includes access to group activities (both social and therapeutic), 1-1 sessions with well-being coaches as well as peer support.

We encourage the use of peer workers and volunteers at our centres. Using the recovery model, we aim to ensure that increasing numbers of the people we help are able to develop positive relationships, become less socially isolated, gain (and retain) paid employment, live in settled accommodation and make a positive contribution to the communities they live in.
