A new series of information leaflets are now available to help people using mental health services in the Southern Trust area.

 

The Trust in collaboration with service users has been at the forefront in Northern Ireland for co-producing such information.

 

 

The set of 14 leaflets aims to offer mental health service users help and support in a user-friendly way.

The leaflets cover many of the wide range of services available including community addictions, eating disorders, inpatient services, supported living, home treatment and recovery.

The information was developed in response to feedback from service users.

 

 

Carmel Harney, Interim Director of Mental Health and Disability Services for the Southern Trust explained, “We are continually trying to improve our services and are delighted to team up with our Mental Health Forum to improve the information we have available to service users.

“Effective communication and offering the right information at the right time can have a huge influence on a person’s wellbeing and recovery, so we are delighted to now have such a comprehensive set of leaflets to complement the expertise and support offered by our staff.

She added, “I would like to thank all of our teams and service users who have put so much effort into producing this high-quality resource and hope that we will be able to develop it to include more service areas in the future.”

 

 

The Mental Health Forum is the official voice of service users in the Southern area, working closely with the Trust to improve mental health services.

The information leaflets will be available to service users when they are referred to services.

They are also available from www.thementalhealthforum.co.uk
