Remember to take care of your wellbeing
25/01/2016

People from across Norfolk and Waveney are being reminded about three special drop-in events taking place this week to showcase the support which is available to help them overcome anxiety, stress or depression.

Wellbeing Norfolk and Waveney has organised the open events in Norwich, King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth on Wednesday (27 January) to help raise awareness of the wide variety of help and support it provides to people with common mental health conditions. It comes after Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT), in partnership with three local MIND organisations and Relate, launched the recommissioned service in September.

The open mornings will give people the chance to find out about the wide range of easily accessible interventions offered by Wellbeing Norfolk and Waveney. This includes talking therapies, one-to-one support, courses, social events, as well as Skype consultations and online webinars, which make it as simple as possible for people to access help, regardless of where they live.

They will also be invited to meet staff, service users and peer support workers, who all have lived experience of mental health issues and use their own stories to help inspire others.

Nesta Reeve, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Lead, said: “We’re keen to raise awareness of the support that we provide so as many people as possible can benefit from the service. We’ve arranged these open mornings to do just that, and would encourage anyone with an interest, or who is experiencing problems themselves, to come along.

“The improved Wellbeing service is already making a difference to hundreds of people, and we hope to help even more as a result of these special events.”

The mornings are open to everyone and all run between 10am and 12.30pm. They take place at:

• Central Norfolk Hub, The Annex, Holland Court, The Close, Norwich, NR1 4DY
• West Norfolk Hub, Providence Street Community Centre, King’s Lynn, PE30 5ET
• East Norfolk Hub, Oaktree Centre, Northgate Street, Northgate Hospital, Great Yarmouth, NR30 1BU

Anyone who would like help from the service can speak to their GP or self-refer by visiting www.wellbeingnandw.co.uk or by calling 0300 123 1503. You can also find out more by following @WellbeingNandW on Twitter or visiting www.facebook.com/WellbeingNandW
