New mental health support website launches
Adults in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough now have access to a mental health support website www.keep-your-head.com. The site, which has been successful in signposting children and young people to sources of support for their mental health, has been expanded to now provide local residents of all ages with a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on wellbeing and mental health.
The site provides a range of local and national information on looking after your mental health, self-help resources, and services that can help when you need more support. There are also dedicated pages for professionals which hold information on referral options and key contact information for services.
Promotional information about the website can be accessed here. Please help to spread the messages as widely as possible by displaying the promotional information in public areas.
If you would like additional hard copies of the documents or graphics for electronic screens please email email@example.com.
The site has been developed by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group, Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust and the SUN Network. The SUN Network will be maintaining the site, on behalf of all the partners, ensuring content remains up-to-date and engaging. Any service wishing to be included on the website can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
