Sussex Oakleaf will be marking this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (14-20 May) with public information and advice sessions across Mid Sussex and Crawley.
The drop-in sessions will take place throughout the week and are open to anyone and everyone who would like to find out more about mental health and the support that Sussex Oakleaf provides.
With the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week focussing on stress, the drop-ins will provide information, advice and signposting to any members of the public who are worried about their own or a loved one’s mental health or stress levels.
Learning to effectively deal with stress can help to reduce the risk of mental health problems like anxiety and depression, and in some instances, self-harm and suicide.
