This May, health leaders around the world are encouraging all people to check their blood pressure regularly and know their numbers to help prevent heart attacks and stroke.
Having high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a serious medical condition that can significantly increase the risk of developing Cardiovascular disease (CVD). It significantly increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke, but early detection and treatment can help people live longer, healthier lives.
STEAM House Cafés have been opened by Access Community Trust in both King’s Lynn, Gorleston and other areas across Norfolk and Waveney. STEAM stands for Support, Transform, Eat, Aspire and Motivate – helping people in Norfolk and Waveney to lead healthier, longer and happier lives.
Supported by Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group, and the wider Integrated Care System, the mental health crisis cafe has created a number of full-time jobs, providing a wide range of holistic support and therapies for adults experiencing mental health crisis. They provide an easy to access opportunity to meet new people and share experiences. The cafés are open from 11am until 4pm, with individual appointments and group services also provided from late afternoon until late into the evening.
