Public Health England to hold FREE webinar to support people through covid-19

On Thursday 12 November, Public Health England are holding a FREE one hour webinar to support the mental health and wellbeing of groups of people who are likely, or currently experiencing, debt and money problems as a result of the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak in England.

  • The benefits of co-operation between local services in meeting the needs of vulnerable customers, including those with mental health problems

Who should attend?
