Stay well through the Dewis website
Looking for advice on staying well ? Then look no further than the Dewis Cymru website.
The website www.dewis.wales is the place for information about all issues relating to well-being in Wales, as well as the first point of information about local organisations and services that can help.
The website includes information on key topics: Being Well; Being Social; Being at Home; Being Safe; Managing Your Money; Children and Families and
Looking After Someone.
The Being Well section looks at a range of issues, including indoor and outdoor activities, healthy relationships (including sexual health) and dealing with medication. It also details five ways of being well (connecting with people, being active, keep learning, taking notice of your surroundings and volunteering).
Bethan Jones Edwards, Head of Regional Collaboration of the North Wales Social Care and Well-being Services Improvement Collaborative, said:
“Being well isn’t just about being physically healthy and free from illness, it’s also how you feel about yourself and your life as a whole. “People often have a greater sense of well-being when they have strong social networks, suitable housing, they are in employment and/or education (if they wish to be) and they are healthy, both physically and emotionally.
“The Dewis Cymru website is a great one stop shop for all the information you need about well-being. There is a directory of services and activities available in your community. It’s all about pointing people in the right direction to the wealth of support already available”.
People can visit the website to register and to access details of support available in their county.
