A wellbeing point in a library

A wellbeing point signposts users to a health and wellbeing portal, enabling them to independently access local resources.

A wellbeing point is a computer or network that signposts users to a health and wellbeing portal (e.g. ALISS), thus enabling them to independently access local resources. These are pre-existing publicly available computers or online networks identified as wellbeing points using a large sign or an icon.

The benefits of wellbeing points are that they are free and easy to set up, but can effectively promote health and wellbeing awareness and increase self management. By making use of community spaces, local people with potentially limited access to technology or IT skills can also receive support from staff.

Adopter organisations can also choose to personalise their wellbeing points to better suit the needs of their users.
