As community support groups engage in promoting awareness, the Co-op is also proud to help promote this week's Mental Health Awareness Week and wants to make sure customers and members get the support they need.
Mental Health Awareness Week, now in its 23rd year, runs until Sunday, 21 May.
The Co-op is in partnership with three mental health charities across England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. You can learn more about the partnerships and how to get support here: Our charity partnership - Co-op (coop.co.uk)
