How to Stay Well in Winter
Cold weather can make some health problems worse and even lead to serious complications, especially if you're 65 or older, or if you have a long-term health condition. This NHS site offers lots of practical information and tips on staying healthy this winter.
Breathing Space Scheme
A mental health crisis breathing space will help stop you being chased or charged fees and interest on your debts for as long as you are receiving crisis treatment, and for 30 days after your treatment ends. The aim is to create time and space for you to get the treatment you need, without having to worry about your debts growing or your creditors contacting you during your treatment.
The Government set up this scheme to provide protection for people who are in problem debt. Visit their website for more information. You can refer yourself, or someone else, for a mental health crisis breathing space by completing a referral form.
