Bridgend County Borough Council is marking Mental Health Awareness Week between 9 – 15 May 2022. With ‘loneliness’ as the theme of the week, the event seeks to demonstrate how it impacts mental and physical wellbeing.
There are many beautiful parks, woodlands, green spaces, nature reserves and beaches around #Bridgend County Borough to visit and enjoy, including many coastal walks and the Dog’s Trust Snoopy Trail which is currently located within #Porthcawl.
There are also a number of services to support people who are suffering from loneliness and mental health issues in Bridgend County Borough. These include:
- Assisting Recovery in the Community (ARC) which offers practical advice, guidance and structured support for individuals with mental health issues.
- Young person’s mental health toolkit – online resources to support mental health and wellbeing.
- Health and wellbeing courses – how to promote mental wellbeing and recognise the support that is available for individuals living with mental health problems.
- Counselling service for young people – how children and young people aged 10 to 15 can access a counselling service to support their emotional resilience.
- The Silver Line – a free, confidential 24/7 helpline offering information, friendship and support for older people.
