You are not alone

Thursday, 21 January, 2021

Havant Borough Council and members of Havant's Health and Wellbeing Partnership have developed a useful online guide to help adults who are living with poorer mental health.

The handy online guide signposts residents to a wide range of free mental health services and resources, whether they are living with an existing condition or one that has been caused by the effects of coronavirus or periods of lockdown, which may have had a negative on their mental wellbeing.

This accessible guide aims to help residents who maybe living with issues such as loneliness and isolation, anxiety, financial worries, changes in personal circumstances or relationship issues.  

This is also a helpful resource for people who maybe worried about someone close to them and how best they can help.  Residents can easily access details of organisations, from one central place,  and in a way that best suits each individual, the guide includes a range of links to face-to-face services, those contactable by telephone, text or online services available.

Councillor Alex Rennie, Cabinet Lead for Communications and Communities at Havant Borough Council, said, "It is vitally important for residents to realise they are not alone in facing any mental health concerns they may have.  

"Through effective partnership working, the council has developed a definitive guide for support in the borough. On-going promotion of our mental health services will help people realise what great local support is there to help them in their time of need".

The guide has been produced by Havant Health and Wellbeing Partnership, in response to general concern about how people may be managing their mental health, and the difficulties both individuals and families may be experiencing as a result of coronavirus. 

Havant Health and Wellbeing Partnership is made up of health partners who include Havant Borough Council, the Clinical Commissioning Group, local GPs and Primary Care Networks, Hampshire County Council and the local mental health charity MIND.
