Promoting mental well‐being in Greenwich — a strategic approach

Promoting mental well‐being in Greenwich — a strategic approach This article outlines the mental health promotion strategy developed by Greenwich teaching Primary Care Trust (tPCT). The strategy focuses on four themes: isolation, anxiety and depression, sleep, and stigma and discrimination. The aim is to address mental health promotion for all as well as targeted action for higher risk groups, in recognition of the great contrasts, diversity and significant economic inequalities that characterise the borough. A key challenge has been to integrate mental health promotion with wider agendas and it is intended that the strategy will inform other important areas of work in the borough, such as the neighbourhood renewal and health benefits regeneration programmes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Public Mental Health Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This article outlines the mental health promotion strategy developed by Greenwich teaching Primary Care Trust (tPCT). The strategy focuses on four themes: isolation, anxiety and depression, sleep, and stigma and discrimination. The aim is to address mental health promotion for all as well as targeted action for higher risk groups, in recognition of the great contrasts, diversity and significant economic inequalities that characterise the borough. A key challenge has been to integrate mental health promotion with wider agendas and it is intended that the strategy will inform other important areas of work in the borough, such as the neighbourhood renewal and health benefits regeneration programmes.
