    [post_content] => The Society of Homeopaths has launched a year-long campaign to promote the role that registered homeopaths can play in supporting mental health and wellbeing.

It will target practitioners and organisations in the healthcare sector.

The campaign has been launched partly in response to the widely-reported pressures on NHS mental health services, including shortage of specialist staff and difficulties for patients in accessing treatment.

Announcing the move at the Society's annual general meeting in London, Sue Crump, Chair of the Society's Public Affairs Committee, said that a key aspect of the campaign’s work would be to highlight initiatives that convey the benefits of homeopathy and treatment by registered homeopaths to the public, other health practitioners and external organisations.

"Mental health problems present one of the major challenges to the health service with one in four people experiencing issues with their mental health at some point," she said. "A primary aim of our campaign is to raise awareness of the part that homeopathic treatment can play in promoting people's mental and emotional wellbeing and so help to tackle what is a very urgent challenge to society as a whole."

The principal aims of the campaign are:
  • To provide information and advice to homeopaths working with patients with mental health issues.
  • To help members raise awareness of the role homeopathy can play in promoting mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as addressing mental health issues, and advise how they can inform allied professions, organisations and patients
  • To raise awareness of the potential of homeopathy in promoting mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as addressing mental health issues, among other organisations, including funding and regulatory bodies.
In the next few months, the Society will be running articles in the members' journal New Homeopath and developing material for its members' sections, My Voice and My Practice, to help practitioners become better informed. There will also be a section on the website covering mental health materials and a special area of the website forum dedicated to encouraging the exchange of views and information on the topic. In the autumn, there will be a symposium for homeopaths and other healthcare practitioners dedicated to mental health.   [post_title] => New campaign to focus on homeopathy and mental health [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => society-launches-homeopathy-and-mental-health-campaign [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-05-08 23:07:33 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-05-08 22:07:33 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://homeopathy-soh.org/?p=14383 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )
