Platform 1 is breaking the mould in the way of dealing with mental health with innovative methods that bring relief to many when other approaches have failed.
In an attempt to widen the knowledge of what is available with such a life saving resources and how that can be used for the benefit of our society mayoral candidates have been invited to see and understand our philosophy and why it works so well!
Platform 1 is a massive force for the alleviation of the next two epidemics which are just starting. Those being poverty and mental health. Both have started and the full impacts are yet to be seen as people find that easing out of lockdown that damage already done becomes more acute.
We want to ensure that those who may have influence are aware of our Crisis Support , wellbeing and welfare, and outreach, together with safe space , counselling and most importantly the connection, empathy and kindness that has been missing for so many people and is likely to remain unresolved
What we do saves lives, everyone should know!
The Grizzled Godfathers of Platform 1 Gez Walsh and Bob Morse invite the media along to share our journey!
The first up then is Conservative Candidate Matt Robinson on Friday 9th April at 12.30
We hope that our visitors will come away a tad grizzled but well informed!
See you there!
The kettle will be on!
