Welcome to North Somerset Wellbeing

Our service is for adults living 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 or support others, reducing the need for mental health specialists. 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.
