Apologies for not updating the blog for a while. December's never a good month for me.

Anyway New Year New Start. So hopefully we'll get back on track.

I did have a meeting with Jim from the Sigma team and produced a series of actions. I'll chase them up over the next couple of weeks and let you know how it goes.

It included getting some police representatives over to our Mental Health Forum to have a chat with us and also to take anyone interested on a tour of the station. We also talked about getting some Forum members involved in the force's training to new recruits. They're always looking for people for role plays. I'm not sure how that would feel - it sounds scary to me. But maybe someone would like to take part. They're all ideas worth following up - will let you know what happens.

Share your story

Too many people are made to feel ashamed. By sharing your story, you can help spread knowledge and perspective about mental illness that could change the way people think about it.
