Have the balls to talk about mental health

This week is Mental Health awareness week with a focus on stress. The Worcestershire Health & Care NHS Trust has launched a campaign aimed at encouraging men to talk about mental health and get support when they need it. 1 in 8 men in the UK have experienced a mental health problem and 3 out of 4 suicides are men. Stress is often a key factor in the development of mental health problems.

To allow people to access help as easily, and as early as possible, the Trust ha developed the Healthy Minds App which provides tips and techniques to help people self-manage more common mental health problems such as stress, anxiety and low mood.

To download the app simply search 'Worcestershire Healthy Minds' in the App Store and the Google Play Store.
