We have a walk in centre for physical ailments but poor mental health can also affect physical health long term. There is a lack of accessible mental health support in the city..whereby someone can walk I and just say..I need to talk to someone..I need to talk. The mental health walk in centre would house counsellors and but also have links to local support. There could be links to citizens advice, jobcentre, council, local charities and almost have a multi agency support hub approach.
Mind and wellbeing will support local people but usually as I understand on a primary level. Those with secondary level mental health sometimes struggle to make appointments tments with their already overstretched GPs because they become anxious about the appointment. Being able to spontaneously drop in ‘within the moment’ would support that person when they are dealing with crisis.
Ultimately mental health support in Norwich needs to increase.
