Everyone needs helps from time to time
Being open and honest with language is de-stigmatising.
Identify consistent points
Explore where help and support might be needed and be visible in that space.
Enable access at the right time
Not just at the point of crisis. Use accepting language that makes users feel welcome.
Use key points of the journey to reach out
Explore whether you can use social networks to support and enable access.
There are huge waiting times for low-moderate level mental health support
Having access outside of the formal NHS health system can enable people to get support from third parties (often nonprofits) at these low-moderate levels of support.
