The Winter 2020 Magazine is now available!

CLW Winter 2020 magazine cover

A very warm welcome to the Winter 2020 edition of the Community Living Well magazine (and excitingly the first one of the year and decade).

As we navigate our way through the shorter, colder winter days, you may feel a dip in your mood. It’s normal for us to feel down in winter.  But if you find that it’s recurrent every winter, then you may have seasonal affective disorder. We have a special feature on seasonal affective disorder covering what it is, what the symptoms are and when to seek help.

We want you to remember that it’s okay to ask for help and support when you’re not okay. My hope is that when you finish reading this edition, you’re left feeling informed, uplifted, inspired and understood.

Plus…

From food and mood, sleep and anxiety to a focus on men’s mental health. The Winter 2020 edition is filled with content that aims to help you on your quest to improve your mental health and wellbeing. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Matt Waters from the West London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) where he talks to us about the role the CCG plays in Community Living Well, his background and what’s on the horizon.

We want you to remember that it’s okay to ask for help and support when you’re not okay. My hope is that when you finish reading this edition, you’re left feeling informed, uplifted, inspired and understood.

As always, this magazine is about you – your thoughts, ideas, concerns and achievements. If you have any suggestions, features or stories you think we should include, please contact me, Michelle, on [email protected].
