Community360 is supporting a countywide campaign which launches today that aims to tackle declining mental wellbeing in the county as a result of coronavirus. The campaign is being led by Essex County Council (ECC) and is supported by partners and organisations across Essex.
Latest figures show the number of assessments by adult mental health practitioners have increased by around 50% and referrals to mental health professionals have increased significantly.
The Essex Mental Health and Wellbeing Team is also seeing its highest number of referrals since it was established.
In response, ECC is launching Mental Health Essex
, a targeted, countywide campaign that aims to reach those most at risk of suffering with mental health issues as a result of Covid-19, providing information and support.
