How we work with you…
Welcome to the Somerset Mental Wellbeing Service (SMWS) Promoting Mental Wellbeing through connecting with your community.
We recognise that mental health needs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so we don’t assume that your diagnosis defines you. We aim to support individuals across Somerset to improve and maintain their mental wellbeing through access to community resources and opportunities. The service is available to those who wish to improve their mental wellbeing to reduce the impact on their lives with meaningful support. You might know what you want to access, but be unsure where to start, or you might not know exactly where you want to be – either way we can help you.  Things you might want to consider accessing:

SMWS FEEDBACK
‘The support had a huge positive impact on my mental wellbeing - I feel more confident, I was at a very low point and I now have strategies to move forward’ ‘It has really helped my confidence that I was taken on the bus into town.  Also, it has made me think about my goals, what I want to achieve and what I want out of life.  This has actually contributed to a forthcoming house move as I have decided to move to an area where I know more people and there is more of a community atmosphere.’ ‘The Wellbeing Navigators involvement made me realise that the services here are better than I’d experienced in the past – I had little trust before.  She made me feel that we were worth something and gave me confidence.  We are in a much better place now.’
