A Community-led Campaign for Better Physical Health
The Barnet GP federation commissioned CB Plus to deliver an awareness campaign that empowers individuals with severe mental health illnesses to receive regular physical health checks. We have worked with GP surgeries, pharmacies, libraries, community centres and Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise organisations to deliver this campaign.
As a result, we had meaningful conversations with residents in Barnet on the importance of physical health to support mental wellbeing. We also held events highlighting the importance of and promoting good mental health.
Since the start of our work in early 2022, data shows an increase in the uptake of physical health checks in Barnet. In addition, our work has supported improving relationships between patients and healthcare providers.
