Hertfordshire Therapy Centre is opening its doors tomorrow for people to talk about mental health.
Hertfordshire Therapy Centre is running a session tomorrow for time to talk day, which aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
The session will be held at Hertfordshire Therapy Centre at 58, Tewin Road, Welwyn Garden City from midday to 2.30pm tomorrow.
Those who attend can enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit while they talk about mental health and how it affects them.
Rebecca McCann, who runs the counselling centre, said: “The idea behind it is to get people talking about mental health and to elevate it to the same status as physical health.
“People who have anxiety, for example, still feel they can’t talk about it and it is embarrassing.”
Hertfordshire Therapy Centre supports children and adults with mental health issues including ASD (autism spectrum disorders), anxiety, depression, anger management, relationships and general counselling.
