On World Mental Health Day 2018 (10th October), the NFWI will be launching a postcard action to encourage healthcare professionals to ask people about their mental health and physical health.
Research suggests that that people with mental health needs often feel that a lack of attention has been paid to their physical health, while others with physical health needs report the opposite effect. To help address this, we’ll be encouraging members to complete our postcard and send it to their local healthcare service (such as GP practice) or healthcare professional. To receive copies of the postcard for your WI please contact NFWI.
