Connect

What does ‘connect’ mean and how can it help improve my wellbeing?

Connecting with other people is one of the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ *

Connect means to invest time in strengthening and broadening relationships with other people - feeling close to others and being valued by others are fundamental human needs. Examples of connecting with others include:

  • Spending time with friends and family
  • Connecting with colleagues at work/school
  • Engaging with your neighbours
  • Getting involved within your local community
  • Joining a club or group
  • Attending local events

Organisations in St Helens that provide opportunities to connect with others include…

Some of the other five ways to wellbeing can also bring opportunities to connect with other people - for example going along to a fitness class at a local leisure centre can provide an opportunity to meet with like-minded people.
