Making sure help is available in Fakenham

They're seeing more and more people struggle with this in the Fakenham area.

That's why more online support is being set up for those suffering with mental health problems.

Administrators of the Fakenham Community Notice Board Facebook group want to do more to help those in need.

Some people struggle to talk about what they're going through

It's often one of the first places you see an appeal from emergency services about someone in distress or a cry for help from someone in need.

So administrators have come together and organised a specialist Facebook support group.

It aims to help those struggling with mental health problems whenever they need it and to organise exercises and chats to make sure people affected have someone to turn to.

It affects different people differently

Patrick Payne is one of those behind the new group and told KLFM:

"It's been heartbreaking to see this - especially the stories that don't end so well.

"Social media - when used correctly and positively can be absolutely fantastic and I think it's the way to go forward to provide support around the clock.

"You'll also be talk to those who have gone through similar problems.

"We'll have member-to-member support, we'll have information about treatments and we'll have procedures in place for when someone has a manic episode or feels suicidal to safeguard them."

They're aiming to launch the new group on Monday (17th June) and you can find out more on the Fakenham Community Notice Board Facebook group.
