A MENTAL health hub celebrated its launch in Maldon.

Time to Change aims to change the way people think and act about mental health. Mental health charity Mind has been working with Maldon District CVS to deliver a Time to Change hub for east Essex.

The opening celebration was held at Maldon Stadium and was attended by Mayor Flo Shaughnessy (pictured) who cut the cake.

Tricia Berhardt, Time to Change Hub co-ordinator for east Essex, said: “The launch marks the start of our campaign to end mental health stigma and discrimination across the area and we would urge everyone to get behind our campaign. Whether you are supporting our work in the community or in your workplace, whether you have your own experience or not you can help to end mental health discrimination.”
