Mental health awareness week 2017 - scams

09.05.2017

8th - 14th May is Mental Health Awareness Week #mhaw17

 

We know that people with mental health problems, learning difficulties or dementia can be especially vulnerable to scams, which can be distressing for everyone.

Find us in St Philip's Place in the city centre on Thursday May 11th, supporting Birmingham Trading Standards:

"In support of Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 8 to 14 May, [Trading Standards] are working with NatWest Bank who are hosting the event ‘Keeping yourself safe against scams’ with partner agencies, including West Midlands Police.

Dealing with scams can have a profound affect on wellbeing, both financially and emotionally. The information we will be giving will have advice on how to avoid being a victim.

We will be giving advice to members of the public on scam prevention and making you aware of the various scams out there and how to avoid them. We can also give you information on what to do if you've been scammed."
