Are you feeling the pressure?
We know what it's like when you're struggling to give people the support they need and worry about their welfare because of, for example, the increase in mental health problems, inadequate funding of services and challenges brought on by the pandemic.
- Overwhelming demand: Do you and your teams find it hard to keep up with the demand for services and as a result feel tired, frustrated and stressed?
- Perceived lack of care: Do people wrongly think you don't care about them, even when you're doing your best to reach out and help?
- Crisis management: Do you handle too many physical and mental health crises that could have been avoided, such as medical emergencies, self-harm and suicidal feelings?
- Health information: Do people in your communities have trouble finding reliable information on your website (or elsewhere) to help them self-care and make well-informed decisions about their health?
- Choosing services: Are people unaware of the kind of support available to them and how to choose services well, so they end up in A&E for a simple sore throat or miss out on free anxiety workshops provided by a local charity that could have turned their lives around?
If any of these sound familiar, consider going digital to create healthier and happier communities that value your support - and enable your teams to feel more in control again and be able to go home on time.
