New Mental Health Service
Qwell, a new online digital platform, provides any person in Gloucestershire aged 18 years and above to access self care resources, information, peer support and access to trained counsellors. It is open to anyone experiencing issues with their emotional wellbeing, such as stress or anxiety and there is no need to be referred.
To access the platform, please click here. (Please note, to access the site you will need to create a pseudonymised account).
This compliments a range of existing mental health services supporting those in the county. For a full list of services, click here.
Mental Health & Covid-19 resources are available for professionals and volunteers and they include:
-training videos providing a basic introduction to mental health and psychological first aid
-a script/conversational guide for supporting people through emotional distress, to support professionals and volunteers who may be contacting vulnerable people or people in states of emotional distress
-a signposting document which lists all relevant countywide mental health services and which groups they are appropriate for. You can find these resources here.
