Mental Health Awareness Week

This year the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is Loneliness. All of our sessions are geared to towards combatting loneliness and isolation, creating a safe space for people to chat, socialise and get back into the community.


Take a look below at what we'll be doing between 9th-15th May to raise awareness for mental ill health, to promote our services to those in need and to raise vital funds.

Photography and Art Competitions

Get creative using any art medium you'd like or get out and about with a camera or smartphone.


Send your photo, or a photo of your art work to mhaw@peppersasafeplace.co.uk by 12th May 2022. The judges and prizes will be announced soon.


All entries should reflect the theme 'Loneliness'. Take a look at some of these examples.
