Club continue support on World Mental Health Day
Luke Chambers visited Samaritans last week to support the inspiring work the charity undertakes.
The Town captain dropped into the Ipswich and East Suffolk branch to learn more about how the charity helps local people ahead of World Mental Health Day 2018.
WMHD is recognised every year on October 10, and provides an opportunity for those involved with mental health to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
“What the Samaritans do shows that there are still tremendous people out there in the world,” Chambo told the Club website.
“They’re people that we can learn a lot from and it’s only right that we use our profile to help in whatever way we can.
“Hopefully what we have done so far this season has opened people’s eyes to understand that it is okay to have problems and it is okay to talk about them.”
If you or someone you know would like to speak to the Samaritans, contact them on 116 123 or visit the Samaritans of Ipswich and East Suffolk at 140 St Helen’s Street, Ipswich.
