Cannock Chase Mental Health Hub

Elephant Logo

Cannock Chase Mental Health Hub was set up in October 2018 to improve communication and networking between all sectors providing support for Mental Health in the Cannock Chase area.

Mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical wellbeing and poor mental health should not be ignored. We are all very different and gaining support for poor mental health needs to be right for your individual needs. There are a lot of organisations within our community that have a diverse range of activities, and volunteers / staff that have lived experience of poor mental health themselves, so they understand what it is like to live with poor mental health and will not judge you.

Five steps to mental wellbeing

Below are five things, that according to research, can really help to boost our mental wellbeing:

  • Connect - connect with the people around you: your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Spend time developing these relationships. Learn more in Connect for mental wellbeing
  • Be active - you don't have to go to the gym. Take a walk, go cycling or play a game of football. Find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life. Learn more in Get active for mental wellbeing
  • Keep learning - learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence. So why not sign up for that cooking course, stat learning to play a musical instrument, or figure out how to fix your bike? Find out more in Learn for mental wellbeing
  • Give to others - even the smallest act can count, whether it's a smile, a thank you or a kind word. Larger acts, such as volunteering at your local community centre, can improve your mental wellbeing and help you build new social networks. Learn more in Give for mental wellbeing
  • Be mindful - be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness "mindfulness". It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges. Learn more in Mindfulness for mental wellbeing
