Take part in Greater Manchester’s big mental wellbeing conversation!

What is mental wellbeing?

Mental wellbeing describes how we are feeling and how well we cope with everyday life. All of us have mental wellbeing. If we have good mental wellbeing we:

• Feel relatively confident in ourselves

• Can build and maintain positive relationships with other people and enjoy making a contribution to our communities

• Cope with everyday stresses and manage life’s ups and downs

How is mental wellbeing and mental health problems connected?

It is quite normal for our wellbeing to fluctuate, but if you experience low mental wellbeing over a long period of time, you are more likely to develop a mental health problem. If you already have a mental health problem, you are more likely to experience periods of low mental wellbeing than someone who has not.

What will we do with the information you provide?
Please note all anonymized responses will be shared with the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) and Local Authorities / Clinical Commissioning Groups to ensure your contribution is influencing plans locally as well as at the Greater Manchester level.
Any data stored will be done so in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). A summary report will be produced and published on our website where all data will have been anonymized.
Prize Draw
As a thank you for completing the survey, you will be entered into a draw to win one of 20 x £25 One4All Gift Cards. If you would like to take part in the draw, please leave your details via the link that will appear after you click ‘done’ on the survey. This is being done separately from the survey to ensure entry to the prize draw is not used to identify individual responses to the survey. Full terms and conditions of the prize draw can be found on the same link.
