Emotional Health and Wellbeing Website

Derbyshire adults urged to seek support through pioneering wellbeing website
NHS and social care partners across Derby and Derbyshire are encouraging local people to use a new online resource to find help if they are struggling with their wellbeing, following new global research which reveals a significant rise in anxiety and depression during the last year due to the covid pandemic.
Residents are being asked to access the pioneering emotional health and wellbeing website derbyandderbyshireemotionalhealthandwellbeing.uk – where a significant new suite of information has been launched in the past week showing the support available to adults who are feeling low or struggling to cope.
Joined Up Care Derbyshire’s partners are urging people who are feeling below their best to seek help, support or advice early on, before their wellbeing deteriorates to the point where they need clinical or medical treatment.  Early help and support prevents deterioration of mental health.
Dr Sohrab Panday, Clinical Lead for Derby & Derbyshire CCG said: “During the pandemic, a lot of people have had additional worry or stress.   It’s so important to reach out for help when you notice that your emotional health is starting to falter – for example when you’re struggling to sleep, experiencing low mood or panic over a period of time.  That’s why we’ve set up the emotional health and wellbeing website where you can quickly find advice and support all in one place that can help adults living in the city and the county, building on the information that was already available for children and young people’s emotional and mental health. This is a fantastic resource for all ages, whether you are seeking advice on wellbeing or if you or a family member is in crisis.
The website shows the range of support that is available and it will hopefully inspire people to pick up the phone to one of the organisations listed and say, ‘I’d like some help.’ That’s the first step towards getting your wellbeing back on track.”
