Mental Health and Well-being Resources

The information below provides links to useful resources which will help you support your mental health and well-being, and the mental health and well-being of the people you work with and/or support.  These resources have been identified by the Community Wellbeing Information Group (CWIG). CWIG was convened by the Mental Health & Learning Disabilities Division in response to the well-being challenges arising as a result of COVID-19.
