Covid-19 Mental Health update - 12 May 2020

Gloucestershire County Council has recently commissioned a range of new mental health services to respond to the changing situation in light of Covid-19. A press release outlining these services is available here.

As lockdown continues, it can take its toll on our mental health and wellbeing. The Community Wellbeing Service in the Cotswolds can work with you to find ways of easing the effects of ill mental health at this time.

Gloucestershire County Council and NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group worked together, with community partners, to integrate Village and Community Agents with Social Prescribing to form the Community Wellbeing Service which came into being on 1st October 2017.

The Community Wellbeing Service works in each district of Gloucestershire, and within GP practices.  Five providers deliver the new service across the county with each provider covering a specific area, ensuring that the service is tailored to the needs of the local area, based on extensive local knowledge.

GRCC covers the Cotswold District area.

Anyone over the age of 16 living in Gloucestershire, or registered with a Gloucestershire GP, can access the Community Wellbeing Service.  Referrals can be made by a health or social care professional, a Voluntary and Community Sector Group, members of the community, as well as by self-referral.

The service offers one-to-one support for individuals and may also signpost or refer people to activities and groups available in their area.   Community Wellbeing Agents have extensive local knowledge and will be able to facilitate local activity.

The service may be suitable for people:

  • in times of change, for example after redundancy, health issues or retirement;
  • in times of emotional hardship, such as after a bereavement;
  • who are worried about debt or financial issues;
  • who don't know where to turn for support;
  • who would like to volunteer in their community.
