Our core service is our Trafford Bluesci Support mental health and wellbeing service.
Bluesci Support are commissioned to provide wellbeing services – delivering psychological interventions within community social settings. This is achieved through locating wellbeing services within North, South and Central Trafford run by and for the benefit of the local community. They are in Partington, Broomwood, Old Trafford and Sale. Trafford residents are free to use whichever one they wish.
The service recognises that good Mental Health and Wellbeing are an integral part of everybody’s life and that everyday things can improve our mental health, wellbeing, levels of happiness and life satisfaction.
1: Connect Developing relationships with your family, friends, people at work, your neighbours and people in communities will enrich your life and bring you support. Your local library is a great source of information about activities and groups in your area.
2: Be active Playing sports, hobbies such as gardening or dancing, or just a daily stroll will make you feel good and maintain mobility and fitness. It provides fresh air, the opportunity to get out and about, social contacts and releases ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain.
3: Take notice, be curious We all lead busy lives, but taking time to appreciate your surroundings, enjoy everyday moments as well as the unusual and reflecting on them helps you to appreciate what matters to you.
4: Learn Fixing a bike, learning an instrument, cooking, gardening – the challenge and satisfaction brings fun and confidence.
5: Give Helping friends and strangers links your happiness to a wider community and is very rewarding. It makes them feel good and you too. Volunteering is a one way to do this. It is a great way to meet new people and gain new experiences. 5 Ways to Wellbeing (Forsight Report 2010)
