BARNSLEY residents are urged to take care of their mental health following the effects of the pandemic.

The South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new guide to help adults across the borough to choose the best ways to look after their mental health.

The guide can help people to look after their own mental health and well-being, can offer advice to help support someone else with their mental health, and can help you know where to go for help and support.

The guide has been developed with clinicians at the trust alongside people with lived experience of mental health difficulties.
