The Wellbeing Hub is being run by Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust’s Healthy Minds service in partnership with Community First, and provides information and signposting for people over the age of 16 who are struggling with things like anxiety, stress, low mood, worry or depression.
It is the first of its kind in Worcestershire and aims to connect people with the range of courses and groups available across the county run by local non-NHS community providers, for example voluntary organisations or charities.
It is estimated that around 1 in 4 of us will experience things like stress, anxiety, worry and depression at any one time. Often they are related to issues at work, money troubles or relationship problems, but they can also be linked to bereavement or issues connected with drug and alcohol use.
The Wellbeing Hub is a single number or email address which will be available Monday to Friday 9am until 5pm and will be manned by Wellbeing Assistants who will help people get in touch with the help and support relevant to them.
Anyone (above 16) can contact the hub during its opening hours and you don’t need to be referred from another healthcare professional. However the hub is not there to support people who are experiencing more serious mental health problems or who are in crisis.
