Be Well Gloucestershire is a year-long local campaign to help when stress, anxiety, isolation and other challenges become hard to deal with. We want to encourage anyone who is having a hard time in the county to access the support that is available and break the social stigma attached to mental ill-health.

This site is the start of what will be a central hub for anyone who needs help or support for themselves or a loved one. Working alongside local organisations, charities and communities, we will develop information and resources to enable more people who live in the county to talk openly about their wellbeing and access mental health and wellbeing support.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and this year’s theme is loneliness. As more of us return to the office and restrictions become a thing of the past, you might expect to see a drop in the levels of reported loneliness and isolation. We know that working can and should be good for our mental health – people who are employed are less likely to report feeling lonely often or always, compared to those who are unemployed or economically inactive. Yet, with the myriad of ways in which work has changed for us all over the last few years, we continue to hear stories of loneliness both at home and in the workplace.
