Welcome to North Somerset Wellbeing

Our service is for adults living in North Somerset (or registered with a GP in North Somerset) in need of mental health support and for their carers. We aim to help people develop skills to manage their own mental wellbeing and recovery journey; we do this by running group courses and activities using wellbeing college style techniques.

 If you have any questions about our provision, please contact us at NSWellbeing@second-step.co.uk to talk through your options.
