Vesta Specialist Family Support has 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.
Mental Health Guide
The guide is written in Polish. The document has been created using mainly 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
The guide has been created after concerns about the mental health issues within the Polish community. We believe that it will help people to understand their mental health better, demystify the taboo and encourage them to seek professional help.
The project is financed by The North West Wales Community Cohesion Fund.
