Wellbeing & lifestyle support in Trafford
Lifestyle and behaviour services in Trafford are changing. An integrated lifestyle offer, in collaboration with the rest of Greater Manchester, will become available over the end of 2017 and into 2018. In the meantime, there are a range of services and support to help people in Trafford live a healthier life. There are services to help people quit smoking, achieve a healthier weight, be more physically active, better manage drug or alcohol problems, and deal with emotional and mental health problems. This support can be self-help using websites and online tools, telephone help lines and face-to-face meetings.
The national One You website provides motivational support to change to a more healthy lifestyle, including information, advice and apps.
We are responsible for promoting and protecting health and wellbeing in our Borough, and we have identified five priorities for Trafford Public Health:
- Reducing the impact of mental illness;
- reducing physical inactivity in the Borough;
- reducing the number of people who smoke or use tobacco;
- reducing harms from alcohol; and
- improving cancer prevention and screening.
