‘Reach Out’ for mental health support in Herefordshire and Worcestershire

The area’s mental health NHS trust has teamed up with a local band to promote mental health support for young people.

The Bromsgrove based band Split Second have written a song called ‘Reach Out’, about the impact of the pandemic on their own mental health. Working with Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, its core message is to encourage other young people to open up and talk if they are struggling too.

A series of busking events were arranged over the summer, and the performance of ‘Reach Out’ was filmed to create a music video which is about to launch across both counties.

The music video will form part of a wider campaign, including sessions in schools and community art displays.

Levi Husbands, who wrote Reach Out and is a Guitarist in Split Second said: “Lockdown had a big impact on my own mental health which led me to the NHS and the writing of this song. We hope anyone who hears the track is encouraged to ‘reach out’. You are not on your own and there are people and organisations out there who can help.”

The Health and Care NHS Trust has also released new information posters which describe the range of mental health support available to children, teenagers and parents/carers. The information posters can be downloaded here.
