Come and learn more about mental health in Romford's Market Place today (Friday).

Havering Mind will be joined by other local mental health charities and service providers for the Mental Health Awareness Week BIG Event, from 10am to 4pm.

People are encouraged to drop by and find out more about mental health and the services available in Havering.

There will also be plenty of staff available to give advice and tips on positive wellbeing.

Ciaran White, events co-ordinator at Havering Mind, said: “It is so important to raise awareness of mental health, to make people understand that it is something that we all have and something that we can all develop problems with.

“We hold events like this to connect with as many people as we can and to remove the stigma that can surround mental health.”

Mental Health Awareness Week is a nationwide event organised by the Mental Health Foundation.

Across the country, events have been held to increase understanding; this year, the campaign has focused on relationships, stressing how fundamental they are to our health and wellbeing.
