About Mental Health
Mental health challenges are widespread in the modern world.
In the UK one out of every four people will suffer mental health difficulties at some point in their lives.
Life events such as the loss of a loved one, colleague or friend, unemployment, uncertainty about having a job in future, financial hardship, migration and identity issues are just a few of many causes of mental distress.
Due to language barriers, stigma and lack of knowledge of services available to sufferers, it can be especially difficult for people from ethnic communities to reach out for help.
Multilingual Wellbeing Services support people in their own language to learn more about mental health and get the support they deserve.

MWS works with a range of different communities in Barnet to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing.
This is done through Happy Life workshops provided across Barnet.
