More people with common mental health problems will receive help to overcome anxiety, stress or depression thanks to an innovative new-look wellbeing service launched by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT).
The Suffolk Primary Care Mental Health Service, otherwise known as Wellbeing Suffolk, will provide a range of holistic, tailored services for both children and adults to support their emotional wellbeing.
With extended opening hours from 8am to 8pm during the week, Wellbeing Suffolk will offer people accessible, responsive help before their problems become too great. The new-look service will also provide talking therapies for those with a wider range of mental health problems, so that they can get the support they need within the community, in turn avoiding a referral into specialist services.
NSFT will work with a wide variety of community and third sector organisations to deliver the service, including Suffolk Family Carers, Relate and 4YP, who will provide interventions to boost wellbeing, such as support for carers.
Outreach Youth supports and works with young people across Suffolk and North Essex, aged 13 to 19 years, who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning their sexuality (GLBTQ).
They provide opportunities to meet as a group and offer one-to-one support in safe, welcoming, non-judgemental settings.
Lots more information is available on their website at www.outreachyouth.org.uk
