We want to ensure that mental health is seen to be equally important as physical health and that the services we offer promote the best mental health for our local population.

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

The impact from Covid-19 has been and continues to be significant across all aspects of people’s lives. The past year has been particularly challenging for health and care workers, who are experiencing unprecedented strain from the impact of the virus. It’s important that, like the general public they also look after themselves during this time and seek support if needed.

Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership is launching a new Resilience Hub that will be open to all health and care staff across the Humber, Coast and Vale area who are struggling with the impact of Covid-19.

The Humber, Coast and Vale area consists of: Hull, East Yorkshire, York, North Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

The service will be completely confidential and will offer advice and support that can help people with a range of issues from emotional wellbeing to bereavement, debt, domestic violence and relationship issues.

Whilst the Resilience Hub is launching in the New Year, the partnership is providing interim counselling and psychology support to existing occupational health and wellbeing services, where a need is identified.

Additionally acute Trust 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.

Further information about the Resilience Hub and how to access support available will be provided shortly.

If you feel your service could benefit from additional interim support please contact [email protected].

You can find out more about local Talking Therapies services via the websites below or by speaking to your GP for a referral.

The Humber, Coast and Vale Qwell service for men launched in January 2021. The service offers one-on-one online sessions with qualified counsellors, peer-to-peer support through moderated online forums, online journals and health and wellbeing articles.
