Mental Health Support Card
Please share the attached info widely across your community networks, which is mainly for adults but there is PAPYRUS, Thriving Kirklees on the card for young persons. Please be aware that many groups/orgs maybe currently short staffed, as many staff and volunteers may now be self-isolating following the government advice issued earlier this week. Additionally, some groups/orgs maybe receiving a higher than normal volume of referral calls.
