Now Health is an enormous topic and covers everything from different eating styles, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free through to mental health such as loneliness or self harm, exercising (how to do it) or even just an explanation of basic food and how to cook it.
Are you involved in any aspect of health?
... if so would you be interested in being part of the SW Herts initiative to grow a Health Support System. This is something that we 'the people' put together as a community driven initiative to start supporting and nurturing each other with respect to Health.
Before we start let's make absolutely clear this is not about replacing or doing anything the NHS is doing. This is about all the gaps in the services that are no longer provided. Nutritional guidance, Mental health support, signposting, even just looking out for the older generation making sure they are ok.
There is so much that needs doing... and there is so much expertise out there in the community. I know at least 6 ex-mental health workers who no longer believed in what they were being asked to do, and who knew that there were better ways other than drugs to help patients. Sadly no longer able to share their skills and knowledge.
