This morning I joined the group at Speak Up CIC in Deal for an open forum. The group meets regularly to provide support for each other - today over coffee and mince pies!
I was questioned about local health provision for those suffering with mental health. I agreed that there needs to be more help and more quick intervention-and also more awareness of the issues of mental health sufferers. We also agreed that too often those with mental health problems are written off by the jobs market-I think if you can work and want to work, this should be accommodated.
I will be holding a mental health meeting with health chiefs hopefully at Speak Up CIC, with Deal group Talk it Out too in the new year to push for improved service.
Here you can read about local news matters and what I've been up to. You can make comments too. I'd welcome your feedback, so please do feel free to comment!
