Following Mental Health Awareness Week, it is important to remember that depression, anxiety and low mood are common and something everyone experiences at some time in their life, as it is a perfectly normal and natural response to some situations. However sometimes these feelings become overwhelming and help is needed.

In these unprecedented times it is important to remember that there is a great deal of help available to those who might be experiencing difficulties with their mental health. Many different organisations, charities and groups are working hard to support people in a variety of ways. The key message here being that nobody is alone.

To help raise awareness of the mental health support available for residents, Battle Town Council have sent out an informative flyer to all households signposting individuals to the sources of support that could be of use. The flyer also details government guidance on COVID-19 as well as other areas of support such as income, benefits, housing and business help.

The Council would once again like to recognise the impressive efforts made by Battle’s incredible volunteer team to help distribute this information throughout our community. This fantastic team of individuals have volunteered a huge amount of time and effort throughout the pandemic, without which, the distribution would not have been possible. If you or someone you know is in need of mental health support, or perhaps other areas of support please see the Council’s Mental Health Flyer which can be found on the Battle Town Council website, for more information.
