Dear resident

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (5-9 October), Dorset Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner are working with Bournemouth University, Dorset HealthCare and other partners to put on a week-long schedule of activities and seminars.

With 23 separate sessions covering five key areas of Community, Activity & Wellbeing, Employment, Education and Public Services, there will be something to spark your interest!

Highlights include an audience with Terry Waite CBE, a humanitarian who was held captive for almost 5 years in Beirut during the late 1980’s and Norman Lamb MP who will be speaking about the relationship young people have with mental health.
