The Mall Luton marks Mental Health Awareness Week with latest episode of Luton Life Podcast

By TheMallLuton

To coincide with the start of Mental Health Week, today (10th May) we've released the second edition of our new podcast -  Luton Life.  This episode shines the light on local support services and explores the stigma around mental health.  To understand more about how the issue is being tackled at a local level, Luton Life host Sophie Sulehria spoke to the Crisis Café team at Mind BLMK, as well as our own staff here from The Mall Luton.  In the episode Sophie visited Mind BLMK to find out how they have supported the community over the past year and are continuing to provide essential services to a growing number of people. Working across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes to promote positive mental health and wellbeing, Mind BLMK is attached to the national charity Mind. The Crisis Cafe in Luton opened their doors in 2020 and offers an alternative approach to help empower people, offer face to face advice and have a safe space to go. Anyone can visit the Crisis Café, making it easily accessible with no forms to complete, just instant support. The café has an open-door policy for anyone who is facing a mental health crisis and is in need of urgent help.
