Coronation Street & Mental Health Awareness

Coronation Street has been praised recently for it’s powerful episode tackling male suicide. Liverpool Echo did a great feature on how Aidan’s storyline came together which you can read by clicking here. With the help of national charities such as The Samaritans & CALM, the writers have put together an eye opening and respectfully made episode that hopefully will bring awareness to the stigma attached to mental health and help others come out and talk about how they’re feeling.

The Echo article also features The Open Door as one of the sources of support in the local area.

One of our main aims as a charity is to tackle the stigma that surrounds mental health and encourage people to create conversation around depression and anxiety. So it was great to see we were featured in an article that shares the same sentiment.

If you have been feeling low, stressed, anxious then please get in touch. We offer free, immediate access for young people aged 15-30 from our creative therapeutic support programme to mindfulness and origami. Our drop in service now runs every Monday from 12pm – 2pm.
