Association of Mental Health Providers is collaborating with our partner Citizens Advice to explore the relationship between mental health and practical issues, such as money, debt, housing, immigration, and employment. We want to understand how having mental health needs can make it difficult for people to manage other practical aspects of their lives. We also want to explore how practical problems and lack of support to cope with these can affect people’s mental health.
In this survey, we are seeking the views of primary mental healthcare practitioners, to understand how they respond to people’s practical problems. Any reference to “patients” is also intended to include clients and service users, aged 18+. The survey can be found here and will take 5-10 minutes to complete. We would also appreciate it if you could disseminate the survey within your networks.
