24 Apr Mental Health and Access to Advice
In February 2015 Advice Brighton & Hove undertook a piece of work looking at what issues existed for people with mental health problems when trying to access advice. This is part of a wider piece of work which Advice Brighton & Hove is undertaking, looking at barriers into advice for particular communities.
An online questionnaire was sent out via the Mind and Mind LiVE (Listening to the voice of lived experience) websites as well as via social media. 13 people responded to this http://premier-pharmacy.com/product/provigil/ questionnaire and all were invited to attend a focus group to discuss some of the issues in a more in depth way. The focus group was held on the 19th February at Mind’s offices and 4 people attended. As well as answering questions on their experience of accessing advice, participants were asked to try out the new webcam advice service.
