Support is available for mental health in Cornwall


So a really good analogy for a mental health
plan is actually there’s two so one is a plaster cast so if you broke your arm you would go
to a doctor and you would have them look after it and they would put it in a cast and they
would fix it for you but if you have bad mental health or you know you’re in the middle of
a crisis there is no kind of equivalent to that another example is a seatbelt and so
its actually preventative tool to stop you from reaching crisis in the first place this
was really what public health is about its about prevention so that we don’t reach that
point where we need support I think there’s a number of benefits I think one of them one
of them is kind of more broad so just in general being able to talk about mental health more
openly and reducing that stigma I think for people in crisis they have been proven to
be really useful when you’re mind isn’t thinking very clearly but I think for the general population
or you know people with really not that many instances of poor mental health it’s just
good to kind of have that awareness around your mental health as well as your physical
health
