Wellbeing self help resources

Feeling healthy and good about yourself makes a real contribution to your health and wellbeing. The Middlewood team are keen to support your journey to becoming a healthier and happier you.

Here at Middlewood Partnership, we are incredibly lucky to have a Social Prescriber.

The Social Prescriber’s role is focused on helping you to improve your health and wellbeing by connecting you to local resources and making the most of what is on offer in our community. They aim to empower you to make positive choices for your health and wellbeing. They will be able to signpost you towards activities and groups running in our community, for example help with mental health problems, support for carers, and other condition-specific support groups.

We’ve gathered together some local and national resources that we hope you find useful.
