Jonathan Williams, CETMA’s organiser said: “We’re coming together as a group to help other males in Llanelli with mental health Problems and to try and end the stigma.
“Training is every Monday from 6pm in People’s Park. You don’t have to be brilliant because it’s all about getting out of the house and getting involved.”
“This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Mental Health must have parity with physical health. Just because you cannot see a bandage, it should not mean that a person should receive less help.
“It should also not matter how hard the economic challenges get, no one in our communities should be left behind.
“A medical support service must be provided that is tailored for the individual but also for their families and carers.
“It is now estimated that 50% of Mental Health now presents itself at the age of just 14. I therefore wish CETMA every success with this project and I hope to see it go from strength to strength.
“All of us have a responsibility to always challenge stigma, promote understanding and raise awareness on this very important issue within our communities.”
