This year, South East and Central Essex Mind asked supporters to join them on Saturday 2nd December at Belfairs Woods for the return of the Mental Elf Run. Wearing elf-themed attire, the Barrons team not only embraced the festive spirit but also demonstrated a collective commitment to breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

The morning was a great way of bringing the community together, celebrating the festive season as well as raising awareness for mental health.
