The idea came from engagement with people who experience mental health needs by our Welsh Ambulance Service Patient Experience and Community Involvement Team. This has now been created in partnership with Interlink RCT and Voluntary Action Merthyr Tydfil and their Service User Representatives from the Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board Together for Mental Health Partnership Board. The new leaflet contains a list of well-established National Helplines, indicating if they are free and available 24/7 (or with relevant limits to this).
The ‘You are not alone’ leaflet -also available to download from NHSDW and WAST Websites- is now being sent electronically to all Partner Agencies, so please circulate widely to all your networks. Also packaged ready for delivery to all ambulance stations across Wales and ready to be distributed in community events as part of the Welsh Ambulance Services’ ongoing Community Involvement work, it is for Ambulance Crews to be able to give to patients as needed, signposting people to support for their mental health needs.
