Mental health awareness
Mental Health – 2019 AGM Motion
We acknowledge the magnificent work done over the recent years of those seeking to raise awareness of mental health issues and promote the support that is there to help people throughout our communities.
As the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 we recognise the urgent need to create the space for people to talk about mental health and seek the help they need.
We propose to continue to work with local organisations and other supporters’ trusts to promote mental health awareness and demonstrate that it’s okay to not be okay to encourage people to open up about their thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Lastly, we encourage our members and the wider supporter base to always seek help from friends, family and designated services if they are suffering in any way.
