Sudbury mayor Adrian Osborne will join scores of community groups outside the town hall next week to highlight mental health services.

Volunteers and staff from a whole host of different organisations are working together to highlight world mental health day on Thursday and they will be available at an information stand on Market Hill.

“This is a chance to get advice, information and signposting from a wide variety of mental health service providers in our area,” said Chris Boatwright, a director of the Kernos Centre in Friars Street.

“Following the success of last year, we will have pat dogs who love to meet people of all ages.”

The stand will be open from 9am until 3.30pm.

Sainsbury’s is supporting the initiative by providing food and balloons.

Voluntary and community organisations taking part include Suffolk Family Carers, the Citizens Advice Bureau, Suffolk Befriending Scheme, Home Start, Health Watch and the Eden Rose Coppice.

Staff from Suffolk Mind are providing a tea and a talk in the library from 3pm to 4pm.

There will also be an art display by Suffolk Mind, the Kernos Centre and the Bridge Project in the library.
