Did you know that one in four people will experience mental ill health in their lifetime?

In recognition of World Mental Health Day we are bringing professionals from mental health and learning disabilities services across Hambleton and Richmondshire together to raise awareness of the support available to people in the area.

The information event at Richmondshire Cricket Club on 10 October, gives people the chance to talk to staff from a range of our services, including talking therapies, veterans services, memory services and child and adolescent mental health services.

Information on how you can get involved with the Trust, including research opportunities, will also be available and you can discuss recent developments such as our new smokefree status with the people in the know.

Representatives from the voluntary sector and partner agencies will also be on hand to discuss the support they are able to provide.

Kathryn Ord, deputy trust secretary, organising the event on behalf of the Trust’s council of governors said: “People don’t always know where to turn for information and advice but there’s a lot of support available in North Yorkshire. We have over 20 services and organisations attending the information showcase and I would encourage people to come along and speak to the professionals about how they can access this.  The event is also a great networking opportunity where you can have a chat to people who may have similar experiences.”

“The information showcase is open to everyone and people are welcome to turn up on the day; no booking required. The event runs between 11am and 2pm and refreshments will be provided”
