Overlooked: Why we should be doing more to support families and friends affected by someone else's drinking, drug use or gambling. 

This report examines Adfam's latest research with YouGov on the prevalence of people currently negatively affected by the drinking, drug use or gambling of a family member or friend in 2021, and the different challenges and impacts these families currently face.

The report's findings highlight the need for more recognition of the impacts on families and friends and it includes recommendations on how to better support this overlooked group.

Mental Health Wellbeing and You

Healthwatch South Tees (HWST) worked in partnership with the Tees Valley Healthwatch Network to create a survey to ascertain local views of accessing mental health and well-being services. They received a total of 525 survey responses and spoke to 65 people during the six focus group sessions they facilitated. The team made it their priority to connect with seldom heard groups to truly reflect the diversity of South Tees communities. During the focus groups, they spoke to carers, older people, ethnic minority groups and people with a visual impairment.
