Attend our mental health awareness event this October

Local people are being invited to come along to a mental health awareness event being held in October at the Town Hall in Chesterfield.

The event will take place on World Mental Health Day on 10 October from 10am to 2pm.  

There will be a number of different organisations attending the event, who will each give a presentation about the support and services they offer in our communities.

Speakers will be attending from Rethink, P3, Live Life Better Derbyshire, You’re Never Alone, Compassionate Voices CIC and Stand To.  

There will also be the opportunity for those in attendance to speak to the organisations individually about accessing their services, and an opportunity to receive a basic health check with Live Life Better Derbyshire.

The event is being organised by the Chesterfield Equality and Diversity Forum, supported by Chesterfield Borough Council.

Councillor Judy Staton, portfolio holder for governance, said: “We encourage those who have concerns about their mental health, or an interest in the subject of mental health to attend this event in order to listen to the fantastic range of speakers we have coming along.

“Mental health is something that can affect any one of us, no matter what background you are from, where you may work or your personal circumstances.”

The event is open to everyone, but places are limited so booking is essential. A free light lunch will also be provided.

If you would like to attend, please email: to register your interest, confirming any dietary requirements, food allergies and accessibility requirements you may have.
