Mental health conditions are common in our communities but not everyone is who suffers from these conditions are ready to talk or seek treatment from trained health professionals.
The longer we delay getting the help we need, the harder it is to recover.
Health Service Procedure
The Healthy Mind Checkup is a private conversation between you and your local Blooms The Chemist Pharmacist or trained mental health first aid team member to discuss your mental health concerns.
Your Pharmacist or trained team member can help you develop an early intervention plan which outlines strategies that may assist you. This consult could take up to 30 minutes.
This support service is free and available at selected Blooms The Chemist pharmacies. Contact your local Blooms The Chemist to get started.
1 in 5 Australians have experienced a mental disorder in the last 12 months^.
You are not alone. In today's society we are constantly reminded of how important our physical health is but what about our 'mental' health?
Your Blooms The Chemist Pharmacist is sometimes the most accessible health professional for people who need health advice for body and mind.
Improving your mental health status is associated with an improved life expectancy, positive social relationships, increased learning, and being more productive.
Just because you are mentally healthy doesn't mean that you never go through bad times or experience emotional problems.
It means that you have the tools to manage adversity, trauma and stress.
People manage these things in different ways so if you haven't found what works for you just yet, make a booking for a Healthy Mind Checkup at Blooms The Chemist, where you can speak to your Pharmacist about what may work for you.
You can also reach out to your healthcare professional for advice and support, including if you're worried about yourself, someone else or just need advice on medications you may be taking.
