Mental health charity Sheffield Flourish has updated its Sheffield Mental Health Guide online resource to ensure local people can access the support they need during the coronavirus crisis.

Flourish, which manages the website on behalf of Sheffield City Council, has split the Guide into three sections: Adult Mental Health Services, Children and Young People's Mental Health Services, and General Support.

Given the mental health implications for everyone feeling the effects of the outbreak, the remit of the Guide has also been widened to include emergency food provision, including foodbanks, and support for vulnerable groups.

Josie Soutar, Managing Director at Sheffield Flourish, told Now Then: "We are working with partners from the Sheffield Psychology Board and Mental Health Partnership Network to provide you with a list of services that we hope will help you get the right support that you need during this time.

"We will do our best to continue to update this list as provision shifts and develops."

For up-to-date information and advice on mental health services, Sheffielders can also call 0114 273 7009 (weekdays, 9am-5pm) or email the charity.
