Mental Health Awareness Week


Untitled design 53

“We are going to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, we will seek to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health.” Mental Health Foundation, 2017

On a daily basis our projects work with clients who have mental health issues, we work with organisations who offer a variety of local services to support these clients and run various trainings to help raise awareness of mental health and encourage positive conversations around the topic.

Through experience we’ve seen how volunteering can impact a person’s mental health; providing them with a sense of purpose, enabling them to gain new skills and meet new people.

Which is why we’ve added even more days to this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, with a whole host of activities ranging from trainings for local organisations to outreach in the community!
