Health and wellbeing
Belfast Strategic Partnership was established to address the life inequalities that impact on Belfast, developing effective plans and interventions to help all residents.
They're supported by the Belfast Health Development Unit which is made up of staff from Belfast City Council, the Public Health Agency and the Belfast Health and Social Services Trust.
These staff will deliver the actions outlined in their key strategic document - the Framework for Action.
The key themes of the Framework for Action are:
- Mental health and emotional wellbeing
- Alcohol and drugs
- Early years / early interventions
- Lifelong learning
- Regenerating living places and healthy spaces
There are also some crosscutting themes:
Childcare and Family Support app
The Health and Social Care Board has developed a Childcare and Family Support app, that helps you search for registered and approved childcare and family support services throughout Northern Ireland.
Mental health and emotional wellbeing
Emotional Resilience Strategy
The Belfast Strategic Partnership has an Emotional Resilience Strategy which was developed using data from our health services, as well as the direct feedback from the last Have Your Say Belfast Survey in 2012.
If you have any queries or comments you can contact Jim Morgan from the Belfast Health Development Unit on firstname.lastname@example.org or 028 9050 2073.
One of the partnership’s recent initiatives is the development of the Take 5 guide.
The guide outlines five key actions everyone can easily do everyday to make themselves feel better.
- Be active
- Give to others
- Take notice
