The 12th Epsom Mental Health & Well-Being Festival is being held from 5th-12th October and comprises a week of activities devoted to mental health and well-being.
With over 70 free events taking place throughout the week there will be talks and workshops about a wide variety of topics: providing a forum for discussion, sharing information and providing answers to questions people may have.
Although the issue is so often hidden and unexplored, there are few things in life more important than mental health. In every respect mental health impacts on all our lives- it is a very rare person who does not know sadness and anxiety, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any one year and there is a sizeable group of people, some 2-3% of the population, whose lives are seriously affected by more severe and enduring mental health difficulties.
One of the events taking place this year features the Bishop of Dorking sharing the story of the joys and challenges of her journey to becoming a Bishop in the Church of England. Hear her story on Monday 7 October, from 20:00 - 21.30.
