We are pleased to let you know that we created a mental health guide for the Polish community living in Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire. It provides information about a number of mental health illnesses and problems, outlining their causes, symptoms, treatment methods as well as contact details for the organisations providing support locally and nationally.
The guide is written in Polish. It's based mainly on information published by the NHS.
The guide covers the following topics:
- what is mental health
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- eating disorders
- obsessive compulsive disorder
- borderline personality disorder
- substance misuse - drugs and alcohol
- organisations' contact details
You can download the guide from our website: https://51805f24-b0b1-4200-8bd3-5013fdf3391e.filesusr.com/ugd/93f57a_e9da4fa0356f4f2196ffb403c878f2aa.pdf
We created the guide as we are concerned about the mental health issues within the Polish community. We hope that it will help people to understand their mental health better and they will be more likely to ask for help when they need it.
The project is financed by The North West Wales Community Cohesion Fund.
