Mental Health and Community Care

 

People need care and support for many reasons. This can be because of their age, disability, health or the personal situation they find themselves in.

 

When you’re living with a mental health problem, or supporting someone who is, having access to the right information - about a condition, treatment options, or practical issues - is vital.
