The practice has a “Mental health Champion” BROGAN whose role is to keep you and staff in the practice up to date with local support services and treatment pathways – they have undergone extra training on common mental health awareness and suicide prevention and intervention.
Back in 2011 Washington Mind were commissioned by the Local Primary Care Trusts to develop printed hardcopy wellbeing guides for the Sunderland, Gateshead and South Tyneside areas. The guides were very popular and thousands of copies were snapped up between the first print and the last one in 2014
To download and print a pdf version of the guide please use the links below.
The downside to anything in print is that it can date very quickly. So to make sure the information we share is as up to date as possible the online version of the guide was launched in 2012, covering the three South of Tyne and Wear areas.
Since then we have worked with Imagine Creative Solutions and the wider community to offer a resource to encourage local people to make the most of themselves and help improve their health and wellbeing and for those they care about.
