For Great Mental Health Day on January 26, Lambeth Council invited mental health specialist Juney Muhammad from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) to lead a discussion with voluntary groups on recognising and supporting people who might be struggling with their mental wellbeing.
At the start of the year you may be thinking about your new year’s resolutions and what healthier habits you can focus on achieving in 2024. If you’ve been drinking a lot over the festive period, you’re not alone and free support is available to cut back or quit.
Today, on Carers’ Rights Day, we seek to raise awareness of the entitlements and support available for unpaid carers in Lambeth, and make sure that more local carers know how to access their rights and get the support they need.
In the recent Lambeth Council consultation on the Carers Strategy, Lambeth carers were asked what local changes would make a difference to them.
We’re very proud of Lambeth’s Dr Jacqui Dyer MBE and Black Thrive Lambeth’s role in developing the first anti racism framework for mental health trusts and service providers in the country. The Patient and Carer Race Equality Framework (or PCREF) was published by NHS England on 30 October, and will support mental health services to embed anti-racism within their organisations.
