Ministerial Visit for World Mental Health Day

Picture for Mental Health Day

In aid of World Mental Health Day, MP Alistair Burt, Minister for Community and

Social Care, visited Oxfordshire Mind and TalkingSpace on Thursday 8 October.

He went on a tour of the TalkingSpace site with colleagues from Oxford Health

NHS Trust and met with people who deliver the service. He then visited our

Oxfordshire Mind offices where he met with former users of the service and sat

down for a roundtable discussion with representatives from Mind, Oxford Health,

and the Clinical Commissioning Group.

It was a really successful visit and a great opportunity to discuss with the Minister

the wealth of services available in Oxfordshire, the work we do, the challenges

and successes we experience, and to further raise awareness of mental health

and wellbeing this World Mental Health Day.

The visit received press coverage from BBC Radio Oxford and the Oxford Mail.
