Finding Further Help


Finding further help and advice


There are some very useful websites which can help you with advice on wellbeing.  We recommend www.getselfhelp.co.uk  where there are leaflets and worksheets to help you with range of problems.  The leaflets on anxiety and depression are particularly good. 
Students may find this site helpful - it explores topics such as anxiety, depression and suicidal thinking http://studentsagainstdepression.org 

Good quality booklets and leaflets are also available from www.ntw.nhs.uk  - the leaflets on depression and alcohol are ones we use reguarly but you will find many others to help. We also use these booklets (which you can download yourself) from http://www.ntw.nhs.uk/pic/selfhelp/ - there are a good range of booklets on all aspects of mental health.

A local support group set up by the Freeman Hospital and its patient has a useful website http://www.ne1dizzy.org.uk/ .  You can find information about their activities and how to contact them by following this link.We use www.patient.co.uk in the surgery to print off information leaflets on a range of topics - you can take a look and see if you find it useful too.We have acquired a new range of leaflets to help you understand common health problems.  They are in the surgery near the consulting rooms.  Do help yourself to any you find of interest.If you or a member of your family has asthma there is an excellent site at www.asthma.org.uk.  It has useful advice on preventing and treating attacks, and can help build up your knowledge about keeping well.Domestic Violence is often an unseen problem but it affects more people than you may think..... look at http://www.enough.me.uk/ for help and advice for yourself or someone you know.People who have problems with their health or mood and who are socially isolated can often benefit from developing an interest or taking up an activity.  There is a service in North Tyneside that can help with this - which is run by Age UK.  If you feel it may be of use to you, your doctor or nurse can fill in a referral form to get you started.You might also like to read the information under the header "Be Self Care Aware" - this has links and leaflets about how to look after the Top Ten conditions which people see their doctor about (from back pain to cough, dry skin to fever).
