Help Available for Mental Health Issues

It’s been a tough time for many of us over the past few months and we can’t say we are surprised to hear that more than half the population of Wales are saying they are struggling with mental health issues.

In response Mind Network and Mind Cymru have been running  a self-help programme to support people with some of the most common issues. The guided self-help programme called Active Monitoring will be free and people can sign up on the Mind Website.

Mind  plans to respond within one week to all enquiries. Materials to help will be provided and a Mind Active Monitoring practitioner will contact each person once a week to talk over issues.

It is intended that the programme will help with anxiety, anger management, depression, feeling alone, grief and loss, self-esteem and stress, but  participants do not need a mental health diagnosis or a doctor referral .

Active Monitoring, which is available in Welsh and English is funded by a grant from the Welsh Government and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action. It is being delivered by 17 local Minds across Wales. Unfortunately it is not available in Gwynedd or Ynys Mon.

Contact your local Mind if you live in these areas: www.mind.org.uk/information-support/local-minds.

To sign up visit the Mind website and fill in the form: mind.org.uk/AMWales.
