Welcome to Wellbeing info Directory

Welcome to the re-vamped Wellbeing Info website!

Thanks to the continued support from Washington Mind and Sunderland City Council, South Tyneside Council and some additional funding the site has seen various updates. As well as improvements and modernisations to the general look of the site the main focus of the re-vamp is to improve the user experience for those visiting the site on a mobile device.

New facilities will also enable organisations who are registered onto the service directory aspect of the site to add their own training, volunteering opportunities and ‘Things to Do’ to the relevant pages.
To add your service to the directory click here!

So whether you have a health concern yourself, are helping a friend or simply curious about emotional health and wellbeing we hope that you find the improved site helpful.

We appreciate your feedback about the site and you can send any comments or suggestions to: or call Washington Mind on 0191 417 8043.


Thought of the week

Washington Mind are working on a number of articles due to be published in the Sunderland Echo in the 12 days leading up to Christmas. These articles are to increase awareness and challenge stigma around mental health and to allow us all to be more informed on how our mental wellbeing can be affected by many things including Christmas. The articles also aim to encourage people to reach out to others and for those struggling – let them know that help and support is available. They also encourage people to carry out one act of kindness a day – which can also help to boost their own mental health. For more information and to read the articles click here


Moses Mumbles

mentalMy name is Laura Moses and I am 25 years old. I live in Washington and am Centre Administrator of a Shopping Centre having recently finished my degree in Business with English at the University of Sunderland, of which I will graduate in December with a 2.1; something I never thought I would be able to do.

I have suffered with depression and self-harm from being 14 years old and after many hospital stays and psychiatric stays I was diagnosed with both Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder when I was 21 years old. I have learned over the years to manage this with self-management, medication and exercise among other things. Another way I have found has helped to help me understand how I am feeling and sometimes put things in perspective is to write it down. That’s why I started this blog.; to help get my thoughts and feelings out of my head. I also hope that by writing my blog it can help other people that are perhaps going through similar struggles as I have, or even help people who don’t know about mental health issues to understand them a little more.
