A new resource has been developed by Derbyshire County Council Public Health – Supporting You to Protect Mental Health and Wellbeing in Adults
This Framework for Action has been developed to support non-mental health organisations to promote mental health and wellbeing in Derby and Derbyshire.
It is relevant for any organisations that are supporting others right now – including staff, volunteers, or residents.
A stepped approach to the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is recommended, whether you are considering staff or resident wellbeing, or both. Not everyone will require signposting to specialist mental health services, and input at an early stage can often prevent later mental health distress.
The resource provides:
- a guide for you to plan and structure your organisation’s response to mental health and wellbeing
- a framework to support yourself, your staff and your volunteers
- key actions
- information and signposting
