You can access the webinars, which are open to anyone living in BLMK or working in the health and care sector, can be accessed online here:

Dr Roshan Jayalath, Local GP and Clinical Lead for Mental Health in BLMK, said:

“As a GP, I know that people have been struggling throughout this pandemic and that mental health is as important as ever right now. It is extremely important that people get the help and support that they need as quickly as possible.

“This is why our local mental health teams have created this resource of webinars to ensure that people can access mental health support as easily as possible from their phone or computer at home.

“However please remember, if you feel like you are struggling with your mental health, it is very important that you talk to someone. You can call NHS 111, or speak to a trained medical professional who can advise on where you can get the right medical help.”

This series was produced in partnership by Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service, Total Wellbeing Luton and Milton Keynes Talking therapies Service, the three providers of Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services in BLMK, to help support and improve the mental health of our local population.
