Quality relationships important for good health and wellbeing

Mental Health Awareness Week
The importance of quality relationships and the positive impact that they can have on a person’s health and wellbeing is being highlighted this week by local doctors.

NHS Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting Mental Health Awareness Week (16-22 May), to promote the benefits of good relationships and to tackle the barriers that prevent them from forming.

The awareness week is run by the Mental Health Foundation and aims to inform people about how vital relationships are and to encourage people to make a ‘relationship resolution’, taking a closer look at their relationships and how these can be improved and built upon.

Dr Simon Rumley, Chair and Clinical Lead for NHS Wyre Forest CCG said: “When we think of improving our health and wellbeing, we often focus on things like healthy eating, exercising more or stopping smoking.
“Other lifestyle factors are also very important and having quality relationships with friends, family members and colleagues can go a long way to helping us feel much better within ourselves.

“Pressures on work-life balance and communicating much more online can make building relationships difficult, but this awareness week aims to highlight the need to prioritise relationships and the benefits these can have on our lives.”

You can make your ‘relationship resolution’ by visiting www.mentalhealth.org.uk/relationships/my-relationships-resolution.
