Mental wellbeing is an important part of all our lives and good physical wellbeing and mental wellbeing often go hand in hand.
This means that when we look after our physical wellbeing we often improve our mental wellbeing too, and vice-versa.
We all go through difficult times when our mental wellbeing might not always be at its best. We might notice that we feel more anxious, stressed or on edge at times.
It's normal to not always feel OK, but if how you feel is beginning to affect your everyday life then getting support can help you feel more like yourself again.
At Live Life Better Derbyshire we listen to what really matters to you in order to help you improve your mental and physical wellbeing.
How our services can improve mental wellbeing
When you join our Live Life Better Derbyshire service, our Health Improvement Workers can work with you on a one-to-one basis.
They can help you find services to help improve how you are feeling. We know that asking for help can feel like a big step, that’s why we take everything at a pace to suit you.

The support we offer is strictly confidential and this means we won’t discuss what you share with us with anyone else.
There are a few exceptions to this however. For example, if we are concerned about your safety or the safety of others, we may need to share this information with other professionals to make sure you have all the support you need.
If you have any questions about this then please feel free to ask a member of our team for more information about our confidentiality policy.
