There’s never been a better time to talk

Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (DWMH) is encouraging members of the public to TALK during Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 13 May to 19 May.

The Trust is encouraging individuals who may be experiencing common mental health problems such as anxiety, low mood, stress, panic, phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and trauma to make contact with their Dudley or Walsall Talking Therapy services so that they can receive help and support.

DWMH has a team of highly experienced therapists who provide a range of therapies across Dudley and Walsall to help people get back to enjoying life and engaging with work or daily activities.

Anyone can self-refer to Dudley or Walsall’s Talking Therapy Service as long as they are registered with a Dudley (aged 16 +) or Walsall GP (aged 17+). Visit www.dwmh.nhs.uk/talking-therapies-service/ for more information.

The Trust is also holding a Facebook Live Q&A session to discuss the subject of ‘body image’, which is this year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week.

DWMH has partnered up with Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (BCPFT) to give members of the public the opportunity to ask specialists any burning questions they have around body image. Viewers can also find out about top tips for creating and/or maintaining a positive relationship with their body.

Anyone can tune into the Facebook Live on Friday 17 May from 1pm on the DWMH (@DWMHNHS) or BCPFT (@BCPFT) Facebook pages.
