In my conversion with Ed Cassidy a senior manager in mental health commissioning for Crawley, Horsham and Mid Sussex CCGs (see last week’s column) he told me a startling statistic that approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime.
In the first of these columns, I spoke to Dr Minesh Patel from the CCG, and something he said really resonated with me. He said that he had prescribed someone with anxiety and depression to do a parkrun - and it really helped.
Bognor Seniors held their last ‘Major’ of the year last week. Known as The Poppy Day Competition, members who were in a service played for that team in a team competition, and were joined by many non-services members.
