RESIDENTS struggling with their mental health are reminded they do not need to be alone.

Warwickshire County Council says mental health struggles have been increasing throughout the pandemic and say help and support is always available.

Council spokesman for Adult Social Care and Health, Coun Les Caborn said: “Worry and anxiety are common problems at the best of times and with these uncertain times, it’s hard not to worry about what it all means for yourself and for those you love.

“The county council is committed to helping those who are struggling in any way we can. While things may feel different, support is always available. I urge those who are struggling to seek help. While we are physically isolated, it’s more important than ever for us to feel socially connected, so try and reach out to people to talk, and try to be there to listen to others.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe and supported.”
