Self-care and further mental health support

North East Essex CCG highlights the importance of self-care and further mental health support as part of Mental Health Awareness Week

 

For Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May), North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group is highlighting the importance of self-care and the further mental health support that is available.

 

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year and so no one is alone. Early identification and using self-care techniques and general lifestyle changes can help manage symptoms and really prevent a situation going beyond someone’s control. In today’s society, the day-to-day demands can feel overwhelming and a starting point in taking control is in being aware of your mental health and asking for help.

It’s not only important to look after your mental health, but physical health also plays a key role, as does a positive social life and therapeutic activities. Throughout the week, North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group will focus on a theme of living well.

 

The Chairman of North East Essex CCG, Dr Hasan Chowhan, said: “Prioritising mental health is so important. It’s not one-size-fits-all – I like to run or cycle most weekends and make sure that I have protected time with my family, but for other people, mindfulness and meditation might be the key to self-care.

“It’s also good to make full use of your support network around you – friends and family who are happy to help when you are feeling stressed or down. No matter what, it’s important to talk to somebody, which is why I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t been feeling right for a while to self-refer through our IAPT service.”

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) is a national initiative and our service, provided by Health in Mind, provides access to a wide range of talking therapy treatments for adults with common mental health problems in and around Colchester and Tendring.

 

Find out more about referral, including how to self-refer online, from the Health in Mind website.

 

Wellbeing Football Sessions Begin At Clacton Leisure Centre

Wellbeing football was launched at Clacton Leisure Centre Monday 13 May as part of Mental Health Awareness week.  This new project for over 18s aims to help adults enjoy weekly football sessions and opportunities for coaching and development whilst supporting mental health and wellbeing.

 

Wellbeing Football is run by Disability4Sport who are working in partnership with Tendring District Council to bring these sessions to Clacton.  Football sessions will be held every Monday at the Leisure Centre from 1pm to 2pm and there’s no need to book, just turn up and play.

 

Dr Louise Catling, Public Health at TDC said: “Being active is not only good for your physical health, it’s good for your mental health too.  For example it can have a positive impact on mood, help manage stress and anxiety, reduce the risk of depression and help with better sleep.  It’s essential that everyone has the opportunity to be more active which is why projects like Wellbeing Football are so important.”

 

Rebecca Morton, Executive Projects Manager, TDC said: “TDC would like to thank a number of local partner organisations, Essex County Football Association, Disability for Sport, Active Essex and Health in Mind for working together to provide funding and resources to support these sessions.  It is hoped through sessions like today we can get people active, raise awareness and most importantly encourage people to talk about their mental health.”
