Supporting You to Protect Mental Health and Wellbeing in Adults

A new resource has been developed by Derbyshire County Council Public Health –

It is relevant for any organisations that are supporting others right now – including staff, volunteers, or residents.

A stepped approach to the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is recommended, whether you are considering staff or resident wellbeing, or both. Not everyone will require signposting to specialist mental health services, and input at an early stage can often prevent later mental health distress.

Update from DDCVS

Our first newsletter of the new year coincides with the week we go into another national lock-down amidst worry about the new variant of coronavirus and the pressure on the NHS.

So we would like to start the newsletter with hopefully more cheery news – our planned events albeit all online – for the coming month or two, and a reminder of what we continue to offer at the CVS at this time.
