The BBC website is offering an excellent tool to check if we would be able to spot the signs on depression or anxiety in someone else. The two scenarios will guide you step by step, asking you how you would respond to a friend or a colleague not being their usual selves.
The scenario tools have been produced with guidance from Mental Health First Aid England, a social enterprise which offers training courses and resources.
You can find the scenarios here. If you or someone you know is struggling, here are some organisations who can provide support:
- Mental Health First Aid England
- Every Mind Matters | One You – NHS
- No Panic
- Anxiety UK
- Shout 85258
More information on crisis support available in Devon, is available on our Crisis Support page
It has been a challenging year for many of us. Let’s pay attention to the signs of distress and help each other.
