Week to raise mental health awareness in Isle of Man

The Isle of Man government is aiming to raise awareness of mental health issues on the island.

Social Services are holding Mental Health Awareness Week, starting on Monday.

The ambulance service promotional bus will be parked at various locations around the island, giving out leaflets and offering tips.

Staff will also offer advice on where island residents can go if they need help.

Bill Malarkey MHK urged residents to attend.

He said: "One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives; therefore there is a good chance that many of us will have encountered a mental health issue, either our own or that of someone we know."
