Staff at a leisure centre in Derbyshire have been going green to raise awareness about mental health.
The team at Alfreton Leisure Centre donned the green clothing as part of the 2024 Mental Health Awareness Week earlier this month.
A spokesman for the Church Street venue said on Monday (May 20): “Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week.
“Here are some of our amazing staff wearing it green in support of such an important occasion.”
The spokesman continued: “One in four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England.
“One in six people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England.
“Don’t suffer in silence.”
