"We are confident that this partnership will not only generate awareness externally of the fantastic work that the charity does and raise vital funds to support the delivery of their programmes in our region, but that we as an organisation will reap the benefits too as we look to train staff and equip our people with knowledge and tools to maintain positive mental health."
