A team which supports the mental wellbeing of Rotherham people is using World Mental Health Day (October 10) to remind residents that support is available if they are feeling depressed, anxious or stressed.
The Rotherham Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service, which is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) provides a range of talking therapies free to anyone over the age of 18 years.
Jemma Dixon, Rotherham IAPT Team Manager, said: “It’s really important that we all encourage our family, friends and colleagues to seek help when they are going through a difficult time.
“Now more than ever, it is important to look after our mental health. As circumstances change and people move through different stages of their life, and also the coronavirus pandemic can all have an impact on our mental wellbeing. If you are struggling to cope with daily life support is available locally.”
The Rotherham IAPT team of psychological wellbeing practitioners, counsellors and cognitive behavioural psychotherapists provide support to help people to better cope and manage stress, low mood, depression and other common mental health issues.
Rotherham people can self-refer into the service and access a range of talking therapies and also self-help information and resources to use in their own homes.
