Help us to be there to support mental wellbeing
Suffolk Mind, is providing free courses for the residents and businesses of Newmarket to help improve mental wellbeing in the town.
The charity is working with businesses, schools, charities and local government to make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health. Now it’s targeting Newmarket to give it the attention it deserves.
Mental health experts will be running a series of half-day Newmarket’s Needs Met sessions, beginning on May 22nd, to share the knowledge and skills upon which wellbeing depends.
The aim is to reduce fear by altering attitudes and behaviours towards mental ill health conditions.
