Emotional Health & Wellbeing

Welcome to NHS Derby& Derbyshire Emotional Health & Wellbeing toolkit.

Emotional health and mental wellbeing affect all aspects of our lives and health choices. Mental wellbeing is about feeling good and functioning well, as individuals and as communities. It is also about our ability to cope with life’s challenges and making the most of life’s opportunities.


Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

Our vision is for a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts.

Mental Health Foundation

If your mental or emotional state quickly gets worse, or you’re worried about someone you know – help is available. You’re not alone; talk to someone you trust.


When you’re living with a mental health problem, or supporting someone who is, having access to the right information is vital. Visit the Mind website to find out more.
