Mental wellbeing

Signs of good mental health include being able to feel relatively confident and have positive self-esteem, to feel and express a range of emotions, cope with the stresses of daily life and adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty.

We all have times when we have low mental wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope. Events that can affect mental wellbeing include: loss or bereavement, loneliness, relationship problems, issues at work, or worry about money. At other times, there may be no obvious reasons why we feel as we do. Our mental wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

Across Camden there are many groups, often run by locals, where you can socialise, perhaps learn a new skill or play sport, and meet up with others from your neighbourhood. Find what’s right for you.

We all have times when life’s problems affect our mental health. Maybe you are feeling down and need a safe space to chat, or you would like to meet new people or try something different? This website lists over 100 groups in and around Camden, many offering free or low-cost activities. While some will help with a specific problem, others offer everyday activities to encourage us all to get out and about. Why not find what appeals to you. You can make a list of the groups that are of interest with ‘My Shortlist’.
