Another way

Today is #TimeToTalkDay, Throughout the day we will share information on local services and campaigns. It's important that we continue to create a culture where it's the norm to speak out and seek help when needed.

We are delighted to share this powerful video from our neighbours at Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. The Another Way campaign once again aims to highlight the importance of talking about mental health and looks to remove the stigma attached - https://youtu.be/LQtWXAJug3o

To start your conversation about the mental health support available in Wakefield this TimetoTalkDay call us on (01924) 255363. One of our social prescribing advisors will work with you to explore what matters most to you as an individual and will help identify the correct support.

Attached is a video from our neighbours at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. Their #AlrightPal campaign is a localised effort to make these short conversations about mental health more habitual and part of that was this outstanding video. https://youtu.be/Rf80AqjARxM

Today is Time to Talk Day
Throughout the day Turning Point Talking Therapies will be posting information and support around mental health - Why it's important to talk about our mental health, important to access support and how to do so.
This post includes a few quotes by our own Live Well Advisors :)

🗣💚 Time to Talk Day - 4th Feb 2021

It is estimated that 3 times as many women seek support for mental health compared to men...

“Plenty of people suffer in silence and feel as though they cant ask for support…please know that its okay not to feel ‘Happy’ and ‘Well’ all the time and asking for support shows courage and bravery. So, when things seem dark, be the light that guides you forward…”

“…Sometimes we may need a helping hand to make a difficult journey – then the destination becomes so much easier to reach. Take the first step and ask for help…”

Break the stigma and get help. #gettalking #TimeToTalkDay #timetotalk #mentalhealthmatters

Vaccination Invitation Letters from the National Booking System

If you are aged (75) or over, and have not yet had a vaccination, you may get a letter from the NHS national booking system inviting you to make an appointment at a large scale centre or community pharmacy.

These are being sent to people who live within 45 minutes of one of the centres that has been opened, which might be in a different area to where you would normally receive your healthcare.

Please note that you do not have to book an appointment at one of these centres if it is not convenient for you to get there. You can:

· choose to wait for an invitation from your GP practice

OR

· choose to wait until one of the West Yorkshire centres open and are added to the national booking system, which will happen over the next few weeks.

Please do not contact your local practice about an appointment until you receive an invitation from them. They will not be able to advise you on when you will get an appointment or which centres are available. All this information is available on the national booking system website.

The centres in West Yorkshire that are currently on the national booking system are:

· Boots pharmacy in Halifax

· Superdrug in the Merrion Centre, Leeds

· Pharmacy2U at the Village Hotel, Leeds

· Pharmacy2U at Morrisons, Dewsbury Road, Wakefield.

Four large scale vaccination centres will be opening in West Yorkshire between now and mid- February. This will be at:

· Navigation Walk, Wakefield

· The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield

· Jacob’s Well, Bradford

· Elland Road Football Stadium, Leeds
