Awareness month - October

OCTOBER 2022 - links

This month brings awareness to many important causes and health issues. We are all affected by at least one of these dates below whether that's our own mental health, a friend's cancer diagnosis or baby loss. The aim of each awareness month is to open up the topic for discussion so no one should feel lonely or overwhelmed. It brings awareness to ways you can identify behaviours or symptoms that need help and ways to reach out.
