The PSA and Stand Together are supporting the Mental Health Foundation's "Lockout" which invites you on Tuesday 10th October from 12 'til 1pm to take some time outside to rest, relax and focus on your wellbeing.
PSAY are coordinating picnics in some of our main centres and we would love you to come along and join us. If you can’t make any of the below invite your workmates to take a break with you at your nearest park or go for a walk, everyone can get involved in there own way
