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.

Please note that while urgent repair work is carried out at our usual premises, all workshops and courses will be held at The Stables, 3-6 Wadham Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JY.

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