A place where people can access free mental health support will soon open in Aylsham.

Norfolk and Waveney Mind, a local mental health charity, will open the community wellbeing hub on Red Lion Street on Monday, July 4.

The hub will be known as REST, which stands for recover, eat, support and talk.

It will provide free walk-in mental health support and signposting services from 11am to 5.30pm seven days a week.

Sam Apeh, hub manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind, said: “Our ambition is to ensure no one has to face poor mental health alone.

"To deliver on this, we will continue to invest in mental health services which are people centered and break down access barriers so more people can get help and support closer to home.”

The charity plans to open similar hubs in North Walsham, Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn in the coming months.
