Health and wellbeing plan

A health and wellbeing plan can be useful for mental health service users to help them to think about ways in which they can deal with their difficulties.

It provides a framework that you can use to gain more control over your life, your problems and the way you feel.

It is important to remember that this is your plan. Only you can develop it and you can do it how you want to. You don’t have to show it to anybody unless you want to but sharing it with people who are close to you can help them to understand how to help you.

It can help you to:

  • Learn about yourself, become an expert in looking after yourself and progressively gain more control over your life
  • Use the experience you have gained over the years to work out the best ways of looking after yourself
  • Manage stress and problems that arise and can be useful in informing others (your family, friends and mental health professionals) how they can assist you
