We're out and about in Telford and Newport for Mental Health Awareness Week, starting Monday 15th May.  See the calendar below to find out where you can come and talk to us about stress, and common mental health issues.

If you’re not able to come and see us somewhere, we will also be sharing our team’s tips on how we deal with our own stress throughout the week on social media.
