Scope Newsletter: Mental Health Awareness Week

Posted · Add Comment

Hello,
How are you doing today? We hope you are enjoying the Spring sunshine and that our online community has been helpful to you recently.

This week is Mental Health Awareness week and we are talking about these issues that affect around two thirds of the population.

“Obsessive Compulsive

Disorder made me pour bleach over my hands”

Nicole wrote us a guest post about OCD, her honest post aims to give us more understanding of this illness.

“It’s not just about being neat or tidy. It’s a debilitating disorder which tortures its victims, making life a living nightmare.”

Welcome to our new mental health advisor


Rebecca is a counsellor and works to support children and young people with a variety of mental health needs.

She has over 20 years experience of supporting people who are vulnerable with complex needs and we are thrilled to welcome her to the community.

Accessible Polling Stations

‘I can’t get into my polling station, they come out to the car park for me to vote’

As we look ahead to the general election, we have put together a guide of what you should expect in the way of accessibility at your polling station.

 

 

 

If you have any questions or suggestions about the Scope online community then we are always happy to listen, get in touch at community@scope.org.uk now.

Thanks for reading, see you on the community!

Sam
