A handy Guide is available at www.havant.gov.uk/together to help adults living with mental health issues. It 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 be having a negative impact on their mental well-being such as loneliness and isolation, anxiety, financial worries, changes in personal circumstances or relationship issues.
The Guide may also provide help to readers worried about someone close to them, showing how to access details of organisations in a way that best suits them. The Guide includes a range of links to face-to-face services, those contactable by telephone, text or available online services.
The guide has been produced by Havant Health and Well-being 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.
