This booklet provides information (in Polish) about major problems affecting the Polish Community and lists supporting organisations in Edinburgh.
It is organised into six chapters:
1. Depression and Anxiety
2. Social Support and Homelessness
3. Addictinos and Substance Co-dependency
4. Domestic Abuse
Each chapter includes a short case study introducing a topic and a check-list of possible symptoms. It is hoped that this will allow readers to understand fundamentals of the mental health problems and signpost them to the relevant organisatins. At the end of each chapter there is a list of support organisatins. The list also distiguishes which of them is Polish or employs Polish staff We believe this will encourage Polish people to use available services even though they may not speak English very well.
