Mental health & wellbeing - Tweetchat 2 University of Plymouth

  

Tweetchat participation is organised by birthday:

Group A - January to April Birthdays take place from 6:00pm - 6:30pm

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem this year yet as a society we are often very reluctant to talk about mental health and wellbeing, and this can lead to people feeling ashamed, isolated and worthless.  (Time to Change 2020)

Talking about mental health can really help to change lives and all health and care professionals have an important role in leading the way when it comes to mental health and well being. Wellbeing and mental health: Applying All Our Health (PHE 2019) states:

Front-line health professionals can:

  •  use the Make every contact count resource, and take every opportunity to have brief conversations with people about making positive changes
  • incorporate psychological aspects of care within all care pathways
  • identify risk factors and symptoms of mental health problems and signpost and refer appropriately
  • identify risk factors and indicators for potential self-harm and suicide and support individuals who may present with suicidal thoughts and refer appropriately
  • guide individuals with existing mental health problems through health promotion advice - and support them to access services to improve their physical health and wellbeing (screening, health checks, physical activity, debt advice)
  • use basic coaching techniques to support an individual who may be experiencing mental distress
      

This #AllOurHealth Tweetchat will focus on the importance of health and care professionals talking about mental health and wellbeing and the impact we can all have.  The Tweetchat will explore the following questions:

  • Why is it important to talk about mental health & wellbeing?
  • What action can we take in our day to day roles to meet our patients mental health and wellbeing needs?
  • How do we identify those people at risk of poor mental health and what action can we take?
  • Have you used PHE’s Every Mind Matters campaign and resources in your practice? What has worked well and what could we develop or improve?
  • What one action can you take in regard to mental health and wellbeing following this Tweetchat?

Here is todays QUESTION 1 Why is it important to talk about mental health & wellbeing? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/eDdqaaNSZY
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:31
Hello everyone - great to be here #AllOurHealth
@PUNC_ctrout
24 September 2020 19:32
@PUNC14 Mental health can affect every single one of us and often in ways we don't realise, that's why it's important to talk to others because no one needs to suffer in silence and speaking up can be the first step toward feeling better in yourself #AllOurHealth
@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:32
@PUNC14 I think there are many reasons but de stigmatising mental health struggles is a big one. It should be very much be paired with physical health to provide holistic healthcare. #allourhealth
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:33
Really nicely said Chloe - thank you #allourhealth https://twitter.com/PUNC_ctrout/status/1309199060679749634
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:33
A really great point #allourhealth https://twitter.com/PUNC19Laura/status/1309199066555920384
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:34
@PUNC_ctrout @PUNC14 especially during these times when we are all so far removed from each other #allourhealth
@mrsmarshall_
24 September 2020 19:34
@PUNC14 @PUNC14 we need to talk about mental health to remove the stigma #AllOurHealth ??
@DebbieC39
24 September 2020 19:34
@PUNC14 #AllOurHealth To lessen any stigma, interestingly I was listening to Radio Exe this afternoon and they had an advert about #EveryMindMatters meaning the message is spreading far and wide across the media
@PUNCBinu
24 September 2020 19:34
@PUNC14 When feeling pain or discomfort in some of our body parts, we go to find treatments to cure it. Similar to that, our brain is also a part which requires deep care, therefore mental health is an essential part of one's life to increase their efficiency #AllOurHealth
@becksreynolds
24 September 2020 19:35
@PUNC14 #AllOurHealth now it is more important than ever to be able to talk about how we feel however we know it can be incredibly hard to find meaningful ways to do this at the moment
@ClareeceW
24 September 2020 19:36
@PUNC14 It’s so important!! It can affect everyone and anyone and everyone differently. It’s such an important topic, the more knowledge we have the better. It also removes the taboo around it! #AllOurHealth
@becksreynolds
24 September 2020 19:36
@DebbieC39 @PUNC14 #AllOurHealth some great resources to support us as professionals as well with the #EveryMindMatters
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:37
@PUNC19Laura @PUNC14 I think stigma is a great point ... i also think that stigma works in a few ways ... e.g i don't want to talk about this because what will people think ... and .. people seeing mental health as a bad thing #allourhealth ? two sides, same coin ?
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:37
Thats really great to hear #AllOurHealth https://twitter.com/DebbieC39/status/1309199585122955266
@becksreynolds
24 September 2020 19:38
@PUNCBinu @PUNC14 We must also remember the the mind and body at intricately connected #AllOurHealth
@RachelHolding6
24 September 2020 19:38
@PUNC14 Poor mental health can affect all of us, and often we feel too much of a burden to talk to others, or ask for help. But we absolutely should, especially now. Have the conversation, break the stigma #allourhealth
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:38
Very well put #AllOurhealth https://twitter.com/PUNCBinu/status/1309199643063078914

@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:39
@AgencyNurse @PUNC14 Exactly, as well as societial stigmas eg boys don’t cry - break down those barriers and the affects on people and their health & wellbeing would be immeasurable #allourhealth
@DebbieC39
24 September 2020 19:39
#AllOurHealth it is strange that people are not afraid to admit to good mental health, but seem to be ashamed of poor mental health
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:39
@PUNC19Laura @PUNC_ctrout @PUNC14 I think we also have to remember that metal health can deteriorate over time ... so it doesn't have to be one big thing. Also one day you can feel ok and the next quite down .. especially at the moment #AllOurhealth
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:40
QUESTION 2 What action can we take in our day to day roles to meet our patients mental health and wellbeing needs? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/62SkO5qnMJ
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:41
really great point #AllOurhealth https://twitter.com/PUNC19Laura/status/1309200708470800386
@becksreynolds
24 September 2020 19:42
@PUNC19Laura @AgencyNurse @PUNC14 Absolutely, for example if you look at the of @MarkWilliamsFMH around the mental health of fathers and the challenges of getting recognition and support for fathers in the perinatal period #AllOurHealth
@DebbieC39
24 September 2020 19:42
#AllOurHealth Look at every body we meet or treat in a holistic way, caring for their minds and their bodies
@mrsmarshall_
24 September 2020 19:42
@PUNC14 We can support our colleagues and promote mental health in the work place during these hard times. We need to look after one another too #coronavirus #AllOurHealth
@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:43
@PUNC14 Asking "How are you feeling?" and leaving the patient to answer openly, be that mentally or physically. Making time when you feel something isn't right. Build a relationship of trust and openess. #AllOurHealth
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:43
Anyone have any thoughts on this ? #AllOurHealth https://twitter.com/DebbieC39/status/1309200741542879232
@PUNCBinu
24 September 2020 19:44
@PUNC14 To have conversations with patients in making positive changes as well as identifying the risk factors of mental health problems.#AllOurHealth
@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:44
@PUNC14 Obviously still make time when things are great too, but ya know, NHS time and staffing ;) #AllOurHealth
@PUNC_ctrout
24 September 2020 19:44
@PUNC14 As nurses we have so many opportunities to have these conversations with our patients, I've found I get a better understanding for patients when chatting throughout the day (meal times, making beds etc) and this gives me chance to offer support and signpost too #AllOurHealth
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:44
This is a really important point ... we need to remember that mental health is not just about the people we care for but also about us and our colleagues #AllOurHealth https://twitter.com/mrsmarshall_/status/1309201677178875905
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:45
QUESTION 3 How do we identify those people at risk of poor mental health and what action can we take? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/qD9cJ10fNP
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:45
@PUNC19Laura @PUNC14 I have learnt over the years that sometime you have to ask more than once #AllOurhealth
@RachelHolding6
24 September 2020 19:45
@PUNC14 How are you feeling? How can I help? Give the patient time to talk, if they want to. #allourhealth
@becksreynolds
24 September 2020 19:45
@PUNC19Kitty @PUNC14 Absolutely, we must take the time to ask ‘how are you feeling?’ and take time for the answer #AllOurHealth
@becksreynolds

RT @AgencyNurse: @PUNC19Laura @PUNC14 I have learnt over the years that sometime you have to ask more than once #AllOurhealth
@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:47
@PUNC14 A tricky one, people will often mask or focus on physical symtoms, and we can often get tunnel vision for phyiscal needs... #AllOurHealth
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:47
@RachelHolding6 @PUNC14 I think you are right - time is key here. We need to help the person to feel like we have time to listen and we don't need to rush off ... it can be hard to do in reality #AllOurhealth
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:49
@PUNC_ctrout @PUNC14 aww that warms my heart ... that's exactly what you should be doing. Chatting, making the most of those opportunities to talk and listen ... making every contact really count #AllOurhealth ... don't ever stop doing this
@AgencyNurse
24 September 2020 19:52
@RachelHolding6 @PUNC14 yes absolutely - or perhaps say i have to dash off a moment but i will come back (make sure you do!) #allourhealth I have to say i am a great believer in making time ;D
@PUNC14
24 September 2020 19:55
QUESTION 4 Have you used PHE’s Every Mind Matters campaign and resources in your practice? What has worked well and what could we develop or improve? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/2O51EktdOs
@Anna_Chick
24 September 2020 19:55
@PUNC14 I absolutely need to read more about this #AllourHealth
@PUNC19Laura
24 September 2020 19:55
@AgencyNurse @PUNC_ctrout @PUNC14 Sitting and having a chat with someone isn't shirking your responsibilities or being lazy. It could provide a whole host of answers to questions that were bouncing around your head #Allourhealth
@ClareeceW
24 September 2020 19:56
@PUNC14 Everyone you should be aware of the different conditions that there are. We should also ask our patients about their mental health, asking the questions is the first step #AllOurHealth
@PUNC_ctrout
24 September 2020 19:56
@PUNC14 Everyone is different and will respond in different ways, so I think the important thing is to make sure we signpost to all suitable forms of support to allow the individual to decide what's best for them and support them through these choices too #AllOurHealth
@DebbieC39
24 September 2020 19:56

@RachelHolding6
24 September 2020 19:57
@PUNC14 We should take a holistic approach to their care. Recognise that there are signs to poor mental health, but 'one size does not fit all.' More training and awareness #allourhealth
@AgencyNurse
