Havant Health and Wellbeing Partnership has developed this online guide to help get you to the right place for support or help with your mental wellbeing. This guide is for residents aged 18 or over who are looking for help with their mental health. If you are under 18, please visit the Hampshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service or call 0300 304 0050.
Whether your wellbeing is affected by an illness or disability, the effects of covid-19 and coping during periods of lockdown, or simply that you feel that your mental health has taken a tumble in recent months, there is a range of support available. Each service can help you manage your mental health, maintain positive mental wellbeing and get you back to the place where you would like to be. The help available is varied, and accessible below under the following headings:
- Local mental health support services
- Domestic/sexual abuse
- Drug, alcohol and substance abuse
- Financial support services
Services can be accessed in several ways. These include face-to-face services, contact by telephone, text or online support.
The guide has been produced by the Havant Health and Wellbeing Partnership, in response to concern about how local people may be managing their mental health and the difficulties people may be experiencing as a result of coronavirus and lockdown.
This is made up of local health partners including Havant Borough Council, the Clinical Commissioning Group, local GPs and Primary Care Networks, Community First, Hampshire County Council and Havant & East Hampshire mental health charity, MIND.
The Partnership is focussed on actively promoting the health and wellbeing of local residents living across the Havant Borough area.
