  • World Mental Health Day 2019

    Thursday 10th October 2019 is World Mental Health Day! We often only think and hear about mental health when we learn that somebody is experiencing mental ill health, but we all have mental health and it's important that we keep ourselves and each other mentally well as well as physically well. To mark World Mental Health Day, CLAPA's Adult Services Coordinator takes a look at what's available for the cleft community.
