A Northamptonshire charity that focuses on mental health will be present in a Northampton shopping centre for two more days.

As part of Mental Health Awareness week, Northamptonshire Mind have set up in a unit next to River Island in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre, to speak to shoppers and offer support.

The charity will remain in the centre today (May 14) and tomorrow (May 15) where the team will aim to deliver a calm environment for members of the community.

The team is ready to offer support to anyone who may need it.

Sarah Hillier, Northamptonshire Mind CEO, said: “We will be promoting our day opportunities, Crisis Cafes, Navigators, BBO, Volunteers, Hospital at Home, Breathing Space project and counselling to name just a few.

“Some people might just need some information about mental health, and we are there to support anyone and everyone.”

James Roberts, centre manager, added: “To say it has been a challenging year is, of course, a huge understatement and we want to make sure that we are offering everyone within our community – centre team, retailers and customers – an opportunity to seek help and advice easily.

“By providing support through our online social channels for the week, as well as within the centre, we hope that lots of people will access Northamptonshire Mind’s amazing services.”

The partnership is the beginning of a wider collaboration between the charity and the shopping centre.
