World Mental Health Day: Help to improve mental health care in Birmingham

October 10, 2023

This World Mental Health Day we’re focusing on a local issue – the quality of NHS Community Mental Health Services in South and East Birmingham. Many people have been telling us about difficulties accessing these services recently, so we’re running a confidential survey to understand more about their experiences.

If you’re a service user or a relative/carer/friend of someone using NHS Community Mental Health Services in South or East Birmingham we’d love to hear your feedback. What you tell us will be used in our upcoming report to help Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) make important improvements to the care Community Mental Health Services provide.

The survey runs until this Thursday (12th October) so this is your last chance to get involved. Please just click here to complete the survey and a huge thanks to everyone who has shared their experiences with us so far.

Whether you use NHS Community Mental Health Services or not, we know that plenty of people are feeling stressed, worried and finding it difficult to cope at the moment. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to getting help for your mental health and a list of local organisations who can offer you support.

You can also contact our confidential, free and friendly Information and Signposting service by calling 0800 652 5278 / emailing / using our online form to find out more about the help available for your own personal circumstances.
