Background

Kingston Council would like to support our community as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic – particularly in terms of our mental wellbeing.

We need to know what you think so we can decide what is the best way to help.

Most people will experience poor mental health at least once in their lives. Good mental health and wellbeing is not just about not having mental illness. It's about feeling connected, supported and being able to take part in society.
