World Mental Health Day 2021

World Mental Health Day – Sunday 10th October 2021, a day to raise awareness, educate and reduce the stigma associated to mental health so people feel comfortable to talk when they are struggling.

As a Surrey mental health charity, mental health and wellbeing is part of our everyday work and we regularly encourage staff, volunteers, partners and clients to look after themselves and to look at ways of improving their emotional wellbeing if they are struggling.
