Town get involved in World Mental Health Day
Town pair Luke Chambers and Flynn Downes, Blues fan Jordan Hockold, and Suffolk Mind chief executive Jon Neal visited Portman Road last week for an open and honest conversation about their experiences with mental health.
As part of the Club’s commitment to supporting charities such as Suffolk Mind and Samaritans, the conversation was held to emphasise the importance of talking, while also recognising World Mental Health Day, which is today.
WMHD is recognised every year on 10 October, 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.
“My advice would be to talk,” Flynn Downes said.
“I didn’t do that at the start but when I did it really helped.”

Suffolk Mind offer a range of services and support and their website can be found here.
Or, 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.
