Mental health awareness event to be held in Derbyshire
A mental health awareness event will take place in Dronfield later this week.
The Let’s Talk About Your Well-Being event will be held at Dronfield Sports Centre between 5.30pm and 7pm on Thursday.
It is being organised by Tricia Black, whose father Terence Neal, 77, of Unstone, took his own life in 2018.
Since his death, Tricia has been working to shine a spotlight on mental health and suicide prevention.
Tricia said: “I live in Dronfield and have run these events since 2018.
“I started running them after my’s dad’s suicide.
“I realised the scale of the mental health difficulties and felt that in some way I should do something about it.
“This is the first event since Covid.
“Though it’s just a small event this time, I hope to run more in the future.”
