Mental Health and Wellbeing in East Riding of Yorkshire Directory Issue 1 June 2016


We all have mental health. Just like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. 

At times we can struggle and our mental health is not as good as it should be. Help is at hand 


Following the recent publication of our Mental Health Services report, Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire’s Information Service has undertaken extensive mapping of local and national services and support for mental health and wellbeing for a new Directory of Mental Health and Wellbeing in East Riding of Yorkshire.


The Directory references useful guidance and resources on what you can do to look after yourself and where to get help. 

The A-Z Section includes details of local services and support organisation and how to access them. Topics covered include:

Gillian Perry, Information & Signposting Officer at HWERY says: 

“In the course of compiling this Directory I have contacted over one hundred local organisations who provide mental health services and support general wellbeing in some way. 

This illustrates that there is a lot of support for those who feel they are struggling or alone. I hope this Directory will connect those in need to that support and inspire others to find new ways to maintain their mental health and wellbeing.”

The Directory is available to view and download from the Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire website:



Print copies of the Directory will be published shortly. If you would like to be added to the distribution list please contact Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire.
