SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH IN THE VALLEYS
It is generally agreed that there is a strong correlation between deprivation and mental health, and with the Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr valley communities housing some of the most deprived areas of Wales there was a strong need for funding to help support its inhabitants.
Since 2015 Valley Steps, a south Wales valleys wellbeing charity, has been delivering wellbeing courses to help and support those local communities. Data held by Valley Steps and consultation with stakeholders indicated that there was a need for additional resources for the more isolated rural and semi-rural communities of Cwm Taf.
