Dronfield woman raises mental health awareness after the loss of her father last year

A Dronfield woman is urging people in the area to talk about their mental health after her father took his own life last year

Tricia Black is hosting an event in the town later this month with several support teams on hand to offer advice to people 

She told Peak FM it's vital we lift the stigma attached to mental health issues: "It's one thing that my dad and his generation feel unable to do. Talk about their mental health. It is still a big thing that they find hard to talk about."

"I find it difficult to talk about and I'm sure everybody does. So the idea is that everybody comes along to this event and it'd a really relaxed atmosphere."
The event takes place on 21st August at The Barn, Dronfield.
