MORPETH’S Mayor joined more than 30 people for a special walk as part of a campaign to help stamp out mental health stigma.
Mental health workers, service users and carers, along with members of the public, did the one-mile March March from the Market Place to Carlisle Park and back again.
The walkers encouraged passers-by to join in and talk to people who have experienced mental health problems and at the end of the route, those who took part made a pledge to help end mental health prejudice.
Mayor Ken Brown said: “I’m pleased that the March March has come to Morpeth.
“We have a lot of facilities and services in our town to support people with mental health issues and the walk is a great opportunity to raise awareness and get people talking about mental health in a positive way.”
The walk supports the national Time to Change campaign to end mental health prejudice.
