LYMM RADIO is proud to support Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

This year’s theme is kindness – and over the next few days, with the help of Dr Rosie Shire and Professor Green we’ll be giving you lots of information and will be broadcasting special audio features to help you through if you are experiencing issues.

We’ll be posting some of Professor Green’s audio features on our website shortly. In the meantime, the Black Dog video at the top of this page provides an insight into the some of the issues and feelings that people experience when suffering with mental health issues.
