Wellbeing

We have created a project here at Express FM called 'Connecting for Wellbeing'.

Our aim is to offer useful advice for anyone who may be struggling with the effects of the global pandemic and the impact it has had on many of our lives. 

This past year has been a particularly challenging time for people’s mental health, with COVID-19 significantly affecting how we feel and the things we would normally do day-to-day.

This project will offer a wealth of information on how to combat COVID-19 anxiety and maintain your mental health. We will also offer useful financial tips on how to manage your money during these unprecedented times.
