Posted on:

In an initiative to raise awareness about mental health services in Cornwall and promote mental wellbeing, NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly will be joining CHAOS Radio for a week-long collaboration.

Scheduled to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week (from 13 to 19 May 2024), the collaboration between NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly and CHAOS Radio aims to provide valuable insights into the services available for individuals dealing with mental health issues in Cornwall, along with practical tips and strategies for maintaining mental wellbeing. The guests will also be sharing vital signposts to receiving help within Cornwall.

NHS staff, peer support workers, and service users will be joining CHAOS Radio presenters during these shows:

  • Monday 13 May 2024, CHAOS Breakfast with Cheryl Gordon between 7am to 10am
  • Tuesday 14 May 2024, CHAOS Morning with Ross Lannon between 10am to 1pm
  • Wednesday 15 May 2024, CHAOS Breakfast with Cheryl Gordon between 7am to 10am
  • Thursday 16 May 2024, CHAOS Daytime with Bryna Jordan from 1pm to 3pm
  • Friday 17 Ma 2024, CHAOS Morning with Meah Howlett from 10am to 1pm

Guests for each show will be announced on CHAOS Radio’s Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter) and Instagram accounts.

You can listen to the shows in any of these ways:

  • via 105.6FM anywhere in St Austell
  • ask your smart speaker to “play CHAOS Radio”

The CHAOS Group understand that mental health affects us all, and by collaborating with the NHS, peer support workers, and service users to hold these conversations, they hope to provide their CHAOS Radio listeners with valuable insights and support.

Service users have been invited to share first-hand accounts of having benefited from mental health services in Cornwall. These stories will highlight the impact of seeking help and showcase the journey toward recovery and resilience.

Kate Shields, Chief Executive of NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board says: “We are delighted to be working with The CHAOS Group to raise awareness of mental health services and the ways in which we can improve our mental health and wellbeing.  

“Supporting people’s mental health is a priority for us and we know how closely our physical and mental wellbeing are connected. The People in Mind service is just one way in which we are working to ensure people have the support they need. 

“People in Mind was launched last year and is a collaboration with community organisations, including The CHAOS Group, to offer targeted mental health support to people aged 16 and over, alongside existing mental health services.”
