Zoe, The Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Assistant Manager over at Health in Mind shared her story with us.
Zoe posted a letter in all the letterboxes in her stairwell a few weeks ago. The response was amazing and several elderly neighbours accepted help, and Zoe collected prescriptions and food for them.
To quote Zoë directly,she said:
It was amazing how much this improved my own mental health and made me feel surrounded by good people
