Mental Health Mates aim to provide an informal opportunity for both sufferers and carers to meet with peers and walk and talk without fear of judgment whilst getting some valuable time in the outdoors.

Now the #findyourwe campaign has enabled volunteer led groups to spring up all over the country connecting people dealing with mental ill-health and their carers, loved ones and families who are welcome to attend.
