Every year, over 4,000 people in Haverhill will experience mental ill health; yet only a quarter will seek and receive treatment.
To encourage positive action and discussion amongst local people Community Action Suffolk and local agencies are co-ordinating a drop-in event at the Burton Centre (next door to Haverhill Library) on Friday, October 11 between 10am and 2pm.
St Nicholas Hospice Care, Live Well Suffolk, Healthwatch, Community Action Suffolk and Sue Ryder are amongst the local organisations at this friendly event who will offer support, advice and the chance to chat about mental health.
The event is part of Suffolk Health & Wellbeing month, a campaign running throughout October which includes a range of healthy lifestyle and mental health events around the county.
This is the fourth year the campaign has run. The focus this year is isolation.
The event will also support national Hospice Care Week which runs from October 7 to 13.
