Mental health support in one place


With funding from Brent Health Matters - BHM – we have commenced the development of a mental health platform for all Brent residents. This first ever Brent mental wellbeing website will act as a Brent wide online mental health support and prevention service. It will be accessible, widely promoted across the Borough, offer a variety of support and opportunities to support positive wellbeing, and work in partnership with other providers. We want this site to be co-produced by people with lived experience of mental health difficulties but also by people we want to find new ways of promoting wellbeing.  Last year the Brent Health and Wellbeing Board recognised the need to have a joined up approach reduce the impacts of Covid-19 and tackle health inequalities hence the creation of the BHM’s programme. We are working with our digital partner, Time to spare in the development of the site and plan to have a draft ready over the next few months. We recognise the level of digital exclusion in our Borough and will be working with our partners to ensure that the website is well promoted so that as many people are able to access as possible, and help those who may not have access.
