We want to encourage and support you to maintain positive mental wellbeing and help remove the stigma surrounding mental health within communities.
Our #TogetherWeCan campaign focuses on helping you or your friends, family or colleagues before they reach crisis point.
The campaign takes into consideration a number of different triggers and life events that we know can be difficult for people to handle.
We acknowledge that mental health and mental wellbeing varies between person to person and what may affect you, may not affect your brother, mother or best friend.
We want to support everyone, whether you have experienced a slight dip in your mental health or may need more help.
Keep checking this page and Wigan Council’s Facebook and feeds for campaign updates.
Alternatively, if you want to help us raise awareness and have a story you’d like to share, please contact our social media pages to get in touch and a member of the team will get back to you.
Always seeing happy, confident and Instagram-worthy images on social media can bring added pressure to look and feel a certain way. Sometimes, it can bring us down if we can’t match this ‘perfect’ lifestyle. Chloe’s story shows the importance of understanding that social media isn’t always real life.
Relationships can be hard work. When romantic, friendly or family relationships breakdown, we might find it difficult to move forward. There is support available and Louise’s story shows that leaning on those around you can help with your mental wellbeing.
Ryan's story shows that by seeking help with what may seem like trivial or common place issues, you can concentrate on what's really important and maintain positive mental wellbeing.
Here’s Arthur’s story, which shows how leaning on a family member for even the smallest things can help you through a difficult time.
