Following Mental Health Awareness Week, Royston & District Roundtable and 41 Club hosted a talk by Steve Mallen, Chair of The Minded Trust in Litlington.
The event was organised to highlight the activities of MindEd in helping to prevent mental illness in young people through whole school mental illness prevention and early intervention programmes. Steve Mallen outlined the work of the charity, which was founded following the tragic death of his son, Edward in 2015, both locally and nationally. The talk was well received and thought provoking, prompting lots of discussion regarding mental health awareness, education and treatment.
In recognition of the inspiring work undertaken by The MindEd Trust for young people in the local area a donation of £2,000 was presented to Steve by Mark Ely, Chairman of Royston & District Round Table.
Speaking on the night Mark commented: “From all the local donations we are very kindly given, our aim is to support our local community. The MindEd Trust is a local charity providing mental health support in our community. It is one of many local initiatives that we are pleased to be able to help.”
Steve Mallen commented: “We are most grateful for the support of the Roundtable. The more we talk openly about mental health and the support available, the more we will prevent people reaching crisis. This will make for happier and healthier schools, families and communities.”
