World Mental Health Day 2018: Building resilience and supporting good mental health across Coventry and Warwickshire

Partners throughout Coventry and Warwickshire are coming together to mark World Mental Health Day (WMHD) in a series of events across the region on Wednesday 10 October. Mental health problems affect one in four people, yet too often people are afraid to talk about their experiences because they fear the response and stigma they may experience.

This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is young people and mental health in a changing world. Partners including Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust (CWPT), Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council are highlighting the work of Rise; Coventry and Warwickshire’s emotional well-being and mental health services for children and young people.

CWPT and Coventry and Warwickshire Mind (CWMind) deliver Coventry and Warwickshire’s emotional well-being and mental health services for children and young people. This is an innovative new approach that will deliver a single service that focuses on prevention, early help and building resilience.

Rise is one of many mental health services including the Recovery and Wellbeing Academy, ‘It takes balls to talk’, and IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapy) service which will come together at The Butts Arena , Coventry on the morning on 10 October.

Dr Sharon Binyon, Medical Director at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust, said: “We want to ensure that people of all ages in Coventry and Warwickshire have a better understanding of what services and support is available to them to actively manage their own mental health and emotional wellbeing and know where to find help and support if and when they need it.  By working together across primary care and specialist care, we aim to provide a more comprehensive mental health offer for everyone, of all ages, ensuring the right care and support is available at the right time close to home in communities wherever possible.”

Cllr Les Caborn, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Health, said: “We know that early help and prevention is key for both physical and mental health, and by helping our young people to build resilience and good mental health they will be better placed to deal with the challenges of the modern world.  Mental health is a problem that will affect everyone, either directly or indirectly, and it is fantastic to see so many partners across the area working together to both support individuals and help break the stigma of mental health.”

Public Health and Sport Portfolio Holder for Coventry City Council, Cllr Kamran Caan said: “Mental health problems can affect anyone of us, any day of the year, but World Mental Health Day is a great day to show your support for better mental health and start looking after your own wellbeing. We all need to take care of our mental health and wellbeing whether we have a mental health problem or not. I am very proud to see all our partners working together to address this serious issue that we need to talk about more and I encourage everybody to show their support for mental health.”
