Finding support for debt, financial, housing or other practical challenges
Many practical things can affect our health and wellbeing including problems with money, debt, housing or legal issues.
You may be able to get support through a Social Prescribing Link Worker. Link workers have the time to understand your situation and what is affecting you, and help you connect to relevant support in your area.
There are also many national services and helplines that may be able to support you, some of which we’ve listed below.
If you are struggling with your mental health and need support, talk to your GP to find out what support the NHS can provide.
You can also find advice, information and links to support at Every Mind Matters - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
And you can find a wide range of groups and services that support mental health in your area here: Mental Health Support Network provided by Chasing the Stigma | Hub of hope
