It’s finally here: WheelOfWellbeing.org

 

wheelofwellbeing.org has been launched!
Wheelofwellbeing.org NOW LIVE!

 

Friday the 11th of July 2014 marked the launch of the Wheel of Well-being website.More and more research is showing us how certain positive actions can improve our mood, reduce risk of depression, strengthen our relationships, keep us healthy and even add seven years to our lives.

The Wheel of Well-being (WoW) is a simple framework that translates this research into positive practice. At the heart of the Wheel of Well-being is the WoW website, a practical collection of free tips, tools, activities and ideas – from a DIY Happiness game to promote well-being at community events, to a Happier at Work programme to improve well-being in the workplace.

“Well-being is about a positive state of mind and body, feeling safe and able to cope, and having a sense of connection with those around us. A focus on well-being can bring positive benefits for people and places. The Wheel of Well-being is a welcome tool which offers helpful tips and practical assistance to individuals, families and communities seeking to improve well-being.”

Gregor Henderson, Director of Wellbeing and Mental Health,
Public Health England

 

 

The website is divided into three sections:

 

WoW Yourself

 

For people to contribute well-being tips and places, create their own well-being checklist and track their personal progress.

 

WoW Your Community

 

For people working in the public, private or voluntary sector, to explore free practical tools and ideas for improving well-being in organisations, workplaces and local communities.

 

WoW Strategy

 

For people involved in policy development and local government, to develop a well-being strategy. This section is a work-in-progress.Wheelofwellbeing.org is the result of an innovative, on-going partnership between the mental health promotion team at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and strategic design consultancy Uscreates, who have been working together since 2008 to develop new ways to promote mental health and well-being across London.

Enjoy exploring the website! We welcome any feedback or enquiries on hello@wheelofwellbeing.org.
