Second Thoughts East Yorkshire Charity Launch Night
January 27 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
New local charity ‘Second Thoughts East Yorkshire’ (STEY) is holding its launch night with local band ‘The Jackdaws’ providing the music, supported by female vocalists ‘Kelly Marie’ and ‘Jessie Stride’. As well as the entertainment, there are great raffle prizes too!
Doors open at 7pm and the gig starts at 7.30pm.
The charity was formed in May 2015 and began operating in August that year. In its first 18 months it has supported over 150 people in managing mental health problems ranging from anxiety to schizophrenia.
Greg Harman, founder of Second Thoughts East Yorkshire, said “More people are struggling with maintaining good mental health nowadays, largely because of the stresses of modern day living. As well as working with individuals, we run small groups across the county on anxiety management and building confidence for example. We also work with employers on mental health awareness.”
Greg added “We are not funded through any grants or contracts from the NHS or Local Authorities, so as well as informing people about what we do, this launch night raises a little funding for us too, but the main thing is people can meet us and find out more about what we do whilst having a good time. Coming in the Hull City of Culture Year too, it is a very special time for the charity.”
