Central Library is inviting people to enjoy a Coffee and Chat to mark this year's Mental Health Awareness Week.

The free drop in event takes place from 10.30am to 2pm on Wednesday (16 May) and will enable residents to find out more about the services available to support their mental health and wellbeing while also enjoying light refreshments.

Taking part will be a range of mental health providers including Starfish Wolverhampton Social Hub, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Community Support Team and Carer Support Team, HeadStart Wolverhampton, Healthy Minds, Healthwatch Wolverhampton and Memory Matters.

Councillor Paul Sweet, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "This is a great opportunity for people to find out how they can improve their mental health and wellbeing over a cuppa in a relaxed environment."

The Coffee and Chat drop-in is one of a series of events taking place in Wolverhampton to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 14 to 20 May and is organised by the Mental Health Foundation.
