Toolbox for mental / emotional wellbeing - South Staffordshire Network for Mental Health

Monday - Friday 9am-5pm

The South Staffordshire Network for Mental Health (SSNMH) has successfully delivered Toolbox projects in Lichfield and Stafford Districts and has nearly 3 years of experience in delivering this self-empowering tool. This is now being rolled out to the six districts across South Staffordshire.

So what is Toolbox?

  • Toolbox is an open access, self-empowering, emotional wellbeing signposting service 
  • It involves a 60 minute Toolbox appointment with a SSNMH Toolbox worker and follow up evaluation at 3 weeks and 3 months.
  • It is to help an individual become more aware of their emotional wellbeing, identify their own support network throughout the 4 identifiable stages of mental health experiences, Wellness, Illness, Distress and Crisis and be signposted to emotional wellbeing tools and services that may be helpful for them.
  • Individuals may self-refer for a Toolbox appointment or be referred through organisations.

Toolbox criteria

  • Must be aged 18 or older
  • Live in one of the 6 districts across South Staffordshire
  • Toolbox is for anyone needing support with emotional wellbeing
  • Not currently receiving secondary services such as community mental health services.

Through this low key resource, individuals will be encouraged to recognise and identify their own strengths and weaknesses and understand the support network around them. It is all about self-empowerment and individuals having tools in their ‘Toolbox’ that can be used to maintain good emotional well being.
