Share your views on mental health services in Lancashire

The 16th – 22nd of May 2016 is mental health awareness week. 

To celebrate the awareness week, Healthwatch Lancashire want to hear your views about living with mental health, and using mental health services in Lancashire. 

The Mental Health Foundation, who organise mental health week,  have helped generate public debates around how anxiety, sleep deprivation and exercise can impact our mental health. In 2016 they are talking about relationships. 

They believe we urgently need a greater focus on the quality of our relationships. We need to understand just how fundamental relationships are to our health and wellbeing. We cannot flourish as individuals and communities without them. In fact, they are as vital as better-established lifestyle factors, such as eating well, exercising more and stopping smoking.

Good relationships help us live longer and happier lives with fewer physical and mental health problems.

The Mental Health Foundation is lobbying national governments, public bodies and employers to promote good relationships and to tackle the barriers to forming them, including mounting pressures on work–life balance and the impact of bullying and unhealthy relationships.
