Mental health

The last 18 months have been tough for us all. The pandemic and several months of lockdown have had a huge impact on people’s mental health. According to a recent Mind study, more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) who answered their survey said their mental health got worse during lockdown. The winter period, especially Christmas, can be challenging for some but there is a range of support to help people through difficult times.

The following information has some useful links to keep your mind healthy during the winter months, and information on bereavement support.

We have provided some mental health and wellbeing resources on our website for people of all ages.
