Yesterday we hosted an online event with panel members from local NHS service providers and charities to talk about mental health.

We asked questions which you submitted in advance. A range of topics were discussed including:

  • The importance of getting help and going to your GP
  • Support groups and online advice, services and activities
  • Prevention support
  • Where to get help
  • Funding
  • Support for people from Black And Minority Ethnic communities
  • Trauma support
  • How services are developing to meet increased and different demands
  • Support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism
  • And much more!

With permission from all the people involved, below is the recording of the event for those of you that were unable to join us and wanted to hear the answers to the questions asked.
