World Mental Health Day event in Chichester

LIBRARIES in Chichester and Horsham are helping to mark this year’s World Mental Health Day by hosting a top medical author.

The worldwide event, now in its 20th year, takes place on October 10 to raise awareness about prevalent illnesses - including depression and psychosis.

Brighton-based writer Catherine Amey, who suffered from a mental illness, will be visiting the two libraries next week.

She will be showcasing her latest book: Psychosis through My Eyes - a Personal and Professional Journey, in Chichester’s branch at 7:30pm on Tuesday, October 9.

She will then be signing copies of her book in Horsham library from 11am to 12pm on Wednesday, October 10.

Both events are free, but tickets are needed for the talk at Chichester, which are available at the branch.
