World Mental Health Day: Support available for you


The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘mental health for all’.

If you’ve found yourself struggling, World Mental Health Day is an ideal time for you to reach out to one of our services.
