HEALTH

Your Health Matters.

Your Health Is Important

At SACMHA we understand that all aspects of your health are important.  We provide a number of services and work with other service providers to help support those within the community.

Visit the pages below for more information.

Cancer Screening

Did you know that people with mental illness are less likely to attend cancer screening?

Screening is important as it can pick up cancers at an earlier stage.

View resources for those with lived experience of mental health.

Black Donors Needed!

There is an increased demand for some rare subtypes, are this is more common in people of Black heritage.  This means we need more Black people to become blood donors.

The Flu Vaccine

Flu kills over 11,000 people every year on average, and some years it is much more. Each year many people are hospitalised by it.
 
We think of it as ‘just the flu’, but it is a virus. The flu virus spreads from person to person, even amongst those not showing any symptoms. It can cause severe complications, particularly for high-risk groups.
 
As Covid-19 is likely to be circulating with flu, it is vitally important to protect those at high risk. They are also the most vulnerable to hospitalisation as a result of Covid-19.
 
So when it comes to flu, there is no ‘JUST’ about it. If you are considering getting the flu vaccination, don’t put it off. If you are eligible, get it now because you need it. It’s free!
