It’s evident from various sources that the pandemic has had a detrimental effect on people’s lives and made those suffering with addiction and mental health challenges worse. Public Health England has noted that the most deprived local authorities have the highest prevalence of problematic drug use, and we wanted to help local people. Knowsley ranked number 3 and Liverpool number 4 most deprived authorities in the English Indices of deprivation 2019 published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
We want to educate as many people as we can to end the their chaotic lifestyles that addiction and depression can bring and provide practical tools that they can use daily. There is a clear synergy between addiction and mental health as many studies have proven, our aim is to provide a rounded support package to target both of these rather than both in isolation. This will ultimately have a positive impact on the NHS, Mental Health Services, and other Crisis Teams.
