WITH COVID-19 creating an unprecedented rise in local residents seeking support for mental health issues, as well as increasing isolation for many people living with dementia, BLG Mind’s new website comes at a time when being able to access digital resources quickly and easily is critical.
BLGmind.org.uk offers a new and streamlined way for local people in Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich to access the charity’s wide-ranging and free mental health and dementia services.
Visitors to the site can select whether they require help with dementia or mental health issues, then view all of the relevant services in their borough.
As well as offering easier access to information and a fresh and vibrant design, the site also meets the highest levels of accessibility. Visitors can enlarge the text or view it in numerous different languages, and make the content dyslexia-friendly.
Organisations seeking mental health training for their staff can create different training packages by selecting modules from an interactive menu of courses.
The new site also features multiple real-life testimonials and case studies from people who BLG Mind has supported, showing the impact and value BLG Mind’s services bring to people, and the positive changes the charity makes to their lives.
Charlotte Fletcher, Head of Development, said:
“We are over the moon with our new site; having a dynamic and user-friendly website is absolutely vital for an organisation like us so that everyone who needs our support can access the information they need quickly and easily.
“We are very confident that the site will enable us to be there when it matters for people with mental health problems and those affected by dementia.”
