New Healthy Minds Resource Now Available

Published: | Mental Health

The NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) Mental Health Improvement Team hosted by Glasgow City Health and Care Partnership have developed an awareness raising resource called “Healthy Minds” to support implementation of the NHSGGC Mental Health Improvement Frameworks. The resource aims to promote a universal basic awareness and understanding of mental health and topics that are associated with and can impact on mental health and wellbeing. 

The resource hosts 14 basic information sessions ranging from basic mental health awareness to sleep. Each session comes with a session plan, facilitators notes, powerpoint presentation and supporting handouts.  The resource is targeted at and can be delivered by anyone with an interest in mental health, no mental health training experience is necessary.  

Michelle Guthrie, Health  Improvement Senior (Mental Health), has been running a series of road shows across Greater Glasgow and Clyde to promote and encourage uptake of the resource.

Michelle says: “We have built on the resources our team have developed over the last couple of years and brought them altogether into one accessible resource. We will continue to review and update Healthy Minds. We hope that we have developed a resource that  empowers individuals, partners and organisations and gives them the confidence to recognise we all have a role in promoting and supporting mental health and you don’t have to be an “expert” to do this”.
