THERE’S A CALL for people in the East Riding to become “Mental Health Champions”, with a free training workshop planned for Beverley Library in June. It’s an initiative from Hull & East Yorkshire Mind in partnership with East Riding Council.

The workshops will enable people to spot signs of poor mental health and enable them to offer support. Lyndsey McClements, of Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said: “One in four people will experience poor mental health every year, but the stigma still attached to mental health creates a barrier to people getting the help they need and deserve. By creating Mental Health Champions, we can move towards a world where no-one has to face a mental health problem alone.”

The Beverley workshop takes place on Wednesday June 15, from 9.30am to 1pm. To book a free place, complete the registration form at
