We support a campaign to help Sefton residents with their mental health and wellbeing called ‘30 Days of Sefton in Mind’.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.
The overall number of people with mental health problems has not changed significantly in recent years, but worries about things like money, jobs and benefits can make it harder for people to cope. In Sefton there many activities and services that happen in the community every week, that you might not even know about, which could improve your mental health and help make life a little easier.
So, from World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September) to World Mental Health Day (10 October) we are going to spread the word about local services and activities available to people in Sefton.
To get involved in the campaign tell Sefton Council about your experience or groups and tweet it along with a photograph to @SeftonCouncil using the hashtag #30DaysofSeftonInMind or alternatively email email@example.com . Tell them about the group or activity, where and when it happens, how it helps and how to access it.
