A new information poster mapping out local mental health support for adults in Herefordshire and Worcestershire has been launched as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.
The aim of the poster is to simplify what mental health support is available at varying stages and how to access it. This includes support to maintain a healthy mind through a range of community based resources; therapy for people experiencing stress or anxiety; to help for people in a mental health crisis.
The poster has been produced by local health and care organisations who together support the Now We’re Talking campaign, which aims to highlight mental health services across Herefordshire and Worcestershire
Gary Morgan, Head of Communications at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, which is responsible for mental health services across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, said, “We’ve heard consistently that people sometimes find it hard to navigate to the right mental health support or service for them or those close to them, and so this poster is a simple way of helping people get to the help they may need as quickly as possible.
“There is lots of support available to people who may be experiencing poor mental health, including from community groups and online courses through to more traditional NHS services and we hope having this information in one place which help people access the bits which are right for them.”
