Our Priorities and Programmes
We have plans to improve services for people who experience poor mental health. We are working towards ensuring that mental health problems are given the same prominence as physical health problems in the planning and delivery of local health and care services. In keeping with our broader aims and ambitions, we want to put in place programmes and systems that will help people to stay well and manage their conditions confidently.
We will improve the care and support available in the community and work to reduce the length of time people stay in hospital. We will work with local councils and the voluntary sector to improve housing and job opportunities for people experiencing mental ill-health. We will create new services to avoid unnecessary hospital stays, such as the introduction of crisis pads, which provide a calm, safe, environment for people experiencing crisis or distress.
Humber, Coast and Vale Staff Resilience Hub
Are you struggling with the impact of COVID-19? Don’t struggle on alone – We are here to help you
The past year has been challenging, especially for health, care and emergency services workers.
The impact of COVID-19, global and personal uncertainty, changes to routine and environment and prolonged periods of stress is putting extraordinary strain on our personal resilience.
We know it’s not always easy to seek support but at this time it’s more important than ever for you to look after your wellbeing.
In recognition of this Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership have launched a new Resilience Hub that’s open to all health, care and emergency services staff across the region.
The Resilience Hub is a confidential service that builds on existing wellbeing support offers that are available and can provide you and your family advice and support that can help with a range of issues from emotional wellbeing to bereavement, burnout and stress, to debt or relationship issues.
The Hub is independent of existing organisational health and wellbeing services and its dedicated team can help you to quickly access the best advice and treatment when you need it.
Visit www.hcvresiliencehub.nhs.uk for more information.
If you feel your service could benefit from additional interim support please contact [email protected].
Additionally hospital staff and care home staff, who are experiencing a common mental health problem related to Covid-19, also have priority access to local talking therapies services in their area. Details of local Talking Therapy services can be found below.
