We have been talking a great deal this week on Tenbury Wells Open For Business and on our Shout Out Show on #CarouselFM about Mental Health Awareness Week, being aware of your Mental Health is something we all need to be mindful of throughout our lives and ongoing.

Both Lauren and I are Mental Health First Aiders and whilst we completed our level 3, we became so much more aware of our own lives and the people around us and in business too.
So, we wanted to cover Counselling in our Blog this week.
