Choose well for mental health

We’ve launched a guide to help adults in Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield to ‘choose well’ when looking after their mental health and wellbeing.

Based on the national NHS ‘choose well’ campaign – which historically focuses on physical health only – the guide showcases examples of how a person may be feeling alongside some of the support available in these different circumstances. It’s hoped that the guide will help local people to know:

  • How they can look after their own mental health and wellbeing
  • Who else can help and provide mental health and wellbeing support
  • Where to go for help and support.

The guide has been developed with clinicians at the Trust, alongside people with lived experience of mental health difficulties and their families and carers.
