On World Mental health day, we would like to remind people how you can access help locally, by calling Navigo’s 24 hour helpline on 01472 256256 (option 3) or if you would like support for mild to moderate anxiety or depression you can self refer to Open Minds.
Free access to mental health support is available for all ages, along with ensuring that basic physical needs are met, are vital to help people stay in a state of good mental health.
The Covid pandemic has affected people in so many different ways, social isolation, loneliness, loss of job which can affect people both in terms of finance and purpose.
It’s so important right now that we do try to reach out to one another, if not physically, then remotely. It’s been so hard for so many, if you feel anxious, stressed or low in mood, it is understandable.
Please reach out for support if you need it, and on World Mental health day it would be good for people to make an extra effort to reach out to others.
All ages and genders have been affected by the pandemic, which can lead to mental health issues, please please don’t struggle alone.
