OK not to feel OK visits the Grenfell NHS Health and Wellbeing Service
Some people who have been affected by Grenfell may experience a range of unpleasant feelings that can appear suddenly or change rapidly; sometimes feelings may seem out of control; sometimes you feel very alert, jumpy and unable to settle. Other times you may experience sadness or depression, making you feel low. These can be symptoms of trauma.
It’s important that you and the people you care about know that when these feelings strike there are steps you can take to help you cope with them.
One very easy step you can take is referring yourself to The Grenfell NHS Health and Wellbeing Service. This service is there to help anybody who has been affected by the Grenfell tragedy and is suffering with the feelings they are experiencing.
The borough-wide #OKnottofeelOK campaign visited the service at one of its bases at St Charles’ Centre for Health and Wellbeing to meet the staff who provide support and to find out a little bit more about what’s available to service users.
If you feel like you or someone you know would benefit from the services provided by the Grenfell NHS Health and Wellbeing team, visit their website to find out more and self-refer yourself if you feel it necessary.
