Mental Health Awareness week 2020

18 May, 2020

Mental Health Awareness week 2020 celebrates the acts of kindness that are so important to our mental health.

Adjusting to life with a stoma can be as much about the psychological impact as the physical one.

For many people the positive influence of a kind word or support from someone who has been through a similar experience can make all the difference to their recovery.

During Mental Health awareness week, we will be using our social media to share the stories of three individuals who found the kindness and support they needed through their membership to our private Facebook group.
