Mental Health issues cannot be highlighted only
when something 'major' happens or when there is a specific 'day' or 'week'
or 'month' set aside for its' exposure. It needs to be constantly promoted with increased
frequent focus on raising awareness of Mental Health & 'ill-health'. The 'Kick Off'
Newsletter is part of this aim.
The Newsletter is also available 'on-line'
for perusal and we anticipate a 'downloading' option in the near future.
Subject matter includes such things

Below is a copy of our
very first newsletter (Andrew Johns - 'a lesson to be learned') Volume 1,
Issue 1. (September, 2007) As you can see, it is brief in contents, allowing for ease of use. It
serves as a useful reminder however of 'Kick Off''s functions and how we might be contacted and
how we operate.
