World Mental Health Day

Mental health problems can affect anyone on any day of the year but many are afraid to talk about mental health problems. 10th October is a great day to show your support for better mental health and wellbeing for yourself and in support for others. If you haven’t seen a friend or colleague for sometime why not give them a call to see how they are. Or, have a conversation with a trusted friend on how you feel and start to break down the stigma around difficult thoughts and feelings. To find out more what else you can do visit www.time-to-change.org.uk
