A new online mental health resource for people in Halton & St Helens was launched on World Mental Health Day.
http://www.live-life-well.net has been specifically designed to help manage a person’s own mental health and wellbeing. Designed by the Health Improvement Team in Halton & St Helens, this interactive website offers information on lifestyle and mental health, including:
- useful local contacts
- a self help section for depression, anxiety and sleep
- information on medication
- a useful resources section with lots of downloads
- information on suicide prevention
According to the Office for National Statistics Survey of Psychiatric Morbidity, 1 in 4 adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year with the most common being mixed anxiety and depression. This is echoed across Halton and St Helens as this is the most common reason for referral to mental health services throughout the boroughs.
