Today, staff at the Additional Support Unit in Whipton got involved in World Mental Health Day by 'chalking about it'.

Learning Disability Staff Nurse Jo Hosegood and her colleagues chalked inspiring messages on the ground as part of the local campaign started by Gill Hayes; 'Let's Chalk About Mental Health', which took place today in Exeter city centre.
The campaign is aimed at stopping stigma, supporting sufferers of mental illness and starting conversations around mental health and suicide.
