This week (13-19 May 2019) marks Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. Every year the Mental Health Foundation chooses an aspect or cause of mental health to focus on and in 2019 the theme is Body Image. 

Jon Cruddas MP commented: “this is an important week to raise awareness and help break down stigmatisation and discrimination. There are some fantastic resources available online to help those dealing with mental ill health, and I urge people across Dagenham and Rainham to have a look at them.”
