We are celebrating national Mental Health Awareness week (8 – 14 May) with a variety of activities and information points across Hampshire.

During the week, staff and volunteers will be at the University of Southampton’s ‘Wellfest,’ Southampton Central train station, Lymington Hospital, Solent University’s ‘Happiness Café,‘  Hythe Library, Ferneham Hall Fareham, Westquay and St Mary’s Hospital Portsmouth, to name just a few of the locations.

Kevin Gardner, Solent Mind’s CEO says, “We hope that Mental Health Awareness Week will help to highlight that mental health problems are a common human experience.  Mental health issues affect around one in four people in Britain, and can feel just as bad, or worse, as any physical illness. This week we will be working to remind people that mental health services are crucially important and need proper investment so they can be available to those that need it. As our vision states, ‘We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect’.”

Kate Blake, Solent Mind’s Fundraising officer adds, “We’re really looking forward to meeting lots of people over the next week, and sharing information and support. Please come over and say ‘Hello’ if you see us when you’re out and about.”
