A public 'Thank you!' has been issued by the Trust for everyone involved in hosting and supporting Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 events.

A busy programme of activities across Bedfordshire and Luton included a Cycle, Walk and Talk hosted by Penrose, Mindful sporting activities in Bedford Borough and awareness-raising sessions at the University of Bedfordshire’s Bedford campus.

The theme for this’s year’s awareness week was Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.

Gail Dearing, the Trust’s awareness week coordinator and Associate Director for Social Care in Bedfordshire and Luton, said:

“I would like to personally thank everyone involved in making Mental Health Awareness Week in Bedfordshire and Luton such a success.

“The Mall in Luton deserve special mention as they provided us all with a fantastic platform to reach so many people and continue our work to ensure people know it is ok to talk openly about mental health.”
