Nur­ture-Psy­chol­ogy car­ried out the train­ing over a two-week pe­riod in sup­port of Men­tal Health Aware­ness Week, work­ing with schools in Heywood, Mid­dle­ton, Rochdale and Bury to raise aware­ness of the im­por­tance of men­tal health ther­apy and get­ting sup­port early.

The road­show, de­liv­ered by clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gists Dr Louise Mansell and Dr Kirsty Hughes, fo­cused on what men­tal health is and how the brain works.

Nur­ture-Psy­chol­ogy is a new not-for-profit so­cial en­ter­prise which aims to im­prove the men­tal health of chil­dren and fam­i­lies and is hold­ing an open day on Thurs­day, May 25, be­tween 4.30pm and 6.30pm at its head­quar­ters at No.2 Es­planade in Rochdale town cen­tre.
