Mental health

Dedicated mental health website launched by NHS Trust

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust have launched a new website specifically designed to support people with mental health issues.

As well as providing support and general advice, the aim of the new website is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health that prevents so many people from reaching out and seeking the help they so desperately need.

In view of this, the website has been designed to act as a centralised hub, storing all relevant information in one place, ultimately helping people get the support they need as quickly as possible. Now We’re Talking will include free online courses, directions to community support, and general NHS services provided by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust.

Gary Morgan, Head of Communications at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, said: “The Now We’re Talking website has been developed to provide lots of information in one place on the range of mental health support and resources available.

“It also has an extensive range of self-help guides which can help people struggling with issues such as stress, anxiety or lack of sleep. We have heard consistently from people that it can be hard to know just what help is available, and we hope the Now We’re Talking website will help make navigating things much easier.”

Local residents will also be able to access a new downloadable resources library, which will feature informative posters highlighting support ‘on a page’ – the aim of said posters is to simplify and clarify what mental health is available, where’s it’s available, and how to access it.

Supplementary to this new website, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust will also continue running their 24/7 mental health helpline for anyone that finds themselves in a mental health crisis or is seeking advice and support. The helpline can be accessed at 01905 681 915.
