Mental health support on offer

People suffering from mental health issues can share their problems and get support at a new group based in South Holland.

Cllr Jack McLean

Community Mind Matters has been set up by local woman Vanessa Hills after first discussing ideas with Councillor Jack McLean. The group has since been supported by council members across the district including Jim Astill, Tracey Carter and Laura Eldridge.

The group will give people suffering from conditions such as depression and anxiety a chance to meet, share their problems and gain access to help. The group is holding its next mental health awareness open coffee morning on December 4 at the Pennygate Foundation building in Spalding from 2.30pm.

Cllr McLean said: "Research shows that one in four people in the UK experience a mental health issue every year, but often people are unsure how they can get help.

"One of our initial aims is to make access to information and support easier and less stressful. Anybody who is feeling isolated or concerned about friends or relatives can come along and get some additional support and advice."
