Ashfield Citizens Advice Team up with Mind

 Ashfield Citizens Advice & Central Notts Mind Charities have teamed up in Ashfield to provide better support clients who go to Citizens Advice with problems that also affect their mental health.

From February clients will be able to access information and support from one of Minds mental health recovery workers who will be based on site at the Kirkby Offices. 

Kathryn Stacey, CEO at Ashfield Citizens Advice says ‘we are absolutely delighted to welcome support from Central Notts Mind as many of our clients suffer from the stress and anxiety related to their problems that they come to see us about.

When people hit a crisis it’s usually accompanied by other problems; having specialist mental health recovery support helps our clients to deal with some of the associated mental problems. This has worked extremely well in Broxtowe Citizens Advice where they have had a Mind mental recovery service for some time.’

Nic Roberts CEO from Central Notts Mind said ‘working together with front line services like Citizens Advice is the key to helping people who need support with mental health. It’s really important that people have access to support in locations where they already feel safe and secure, as well as early intervention to prevent crisis, mental health support being on site at Citizens Advice improves outcomes for many people’.

Nationally the Citizens Advice network has identified strong evidence that 3 in 4 clients experience stress, anxiety or felt depressed because of their issues. Citizens Advice is lobbying for the government to run a pilot testing integrated support in Improved Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) across England.
