Looking after your Mental Wellness
Mental Health or mental wellness as its also called is something that we all have. At times we can be at the peak of our health and at other times we can be needing a little extra help to get us back on track. Just like with physical wellness, our mental wellness can be the product of how we look after ourselves (exercise, nutrition, rest), the environments that we occupy and the things that happen to us or that we experience.
At Flexmind we have one goal – to help people find the help that they need when they need it and to help people have the very best chance of achieving their goals and living the most effective lives possible.
Our team includes psychologists, counsellors, holistic therapists, coaches and people with lived experience of poor mental wellness. We are essentially people just like you.
On this page, you can find out where to find help in a crisis, help for preventing and coping with poor mental health and information on specialist subjects such as early screening for dementia.
