HubOfHope.co.uk

If you are struggling with your mental health and don’t know where to go, you’re not alone. Knowing where to go to get support has notoriously not been easy, but with the new hubofhope.co.uk website – things are looking up. Hub Of Hope has been designed to bring together local, national, peer, community, charity, private and NHS mental health support and services, in one easy to find place. We advise that if you or a loved one are struggling with mental health that you start here.

 

 

The website is easy to function, as when you navigate to the hubofhope.co.uk homepage you are presented with a search bar. Type in your postcode and then mental health services available in your area are listed. Thousands of local, regional and national support groups have signed up to have their service listed, and the website is said to have already directed hundreds of thousands of people to support. Once you have entered your postcode/location, a list will appear with the services available to you. In yellow you will find information about the type of organisation, for example whether they are ‘private sector’ or ‘VCSE’ (Voluntary, Community or Social Enterprise). In red you will find information about what help they can provide, for example if they can offer help with depression, anxiety, addiction, therapy, etc.

 

 

We would encourage you to be brave and reach out if you need support. It’s not easy, and if you are feeling unwell it can be quite hard to know exactly what sort of help/support you want/need. However, sending that first message to an organisation is a massive leap forwards in the right direction and, from experience, I can say it definitely helps doing so. Be kind to yourself, and reach out.
