Thank you for visiting and we hope that this site can provide you with the information you need. The site has a focus on local mental health information, events/training and news, but it also provides links and updates nationally. We hope the site can help you find out more about the services and opportunities that are available to those of us that live and work in Powys.
Can we help you find what you are looking for? You can contact the Powys Mental Health Information Service on 01686 628300 or 01597 822191 or email us at mentalhealth(at)pavo.org.uk
We aim to provide you with a range of information which comes from many perspectives. There are many different views about what mental illness is, its causes and what may be done to help those experiencing mental distress. This website aims to offer you the chance to explore the breadth of information and ideas surrounding mental distress.
We want to ensure that we provide you with the very best information we can, in the best way we can. We need your help to do this. Please do get in touch with your feedback and suggestions.
