MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT DURING LOCKDOWN
Healthwatch is concerned that many people who are suffering from depression, anxiety or stress-related conditions such as PTSD might not be able to access support.
Fears are also being raised that already-stretched mental health services could have to deal with the added pressure of even more people needing support due to Covid-19.
Our Healthwatch team is keen to hear about people’s experiences who might be seeking psychological therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy.
Share your mental health experience by calling 07857036292 (9am-5pm Mon to Fri) or use the Share Your Views section of this website.
