Mental Health Awareness Week #MHAW17 took place between 8-14 May. The theme for #MHAW17 was ‘surviving or thriving?’ and people got involved all over the country.
We supported the campaign locally with our teams getting out and about to highlight the help and support available to people in South and West Yorkshire. Shoppers at Tesco in Calderdale and Kirklees have enjoyed support from the IAPT team, for example, and we saw some great work showcased online too.
The Wakefield Vanguard featured an interview with Sue Robson, one of our mental health nurses, who talked about the work she does and the challenges and successes in Wakefield.
