World Mental Health Day

9 October 2020

Saturday 10 October is World Mental Health Day. It's a day that encourages us to talk about how we're feeling, get support and improve our mental wellbeing.

If you feel that you need support with your mental health, there is a mental wellbeing section on the Our Derbyshire website which gives details of how and where you can get support and advice.

Also, over the summer we launched the Thrive mental wellbeing app which can:

  • help you tackle common causes of stress such as problems sleeping, bereavements, work issues and more
  • screen for anxiety and depression using NHS-approved assessments
  • signpost to external support services - users can seek immediate help directly from the app.

You can also access a CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) programme and seek further support with the touch of a button.

And there's more than 100 hours of content including a range of stress-reducing sessions and a progress journal to help you keep track of your moods and things that trigger stress.
