Treasure Sefton – the local network for better mental health – is supporting the 30 days of Sefton In Mind campaign which runs from Monday 10th September to Wednesday 10th October.
The 30 Days of Sefton in Mind campaign covers the 30 days that fall between World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and World Mental Health Day (October 10). The campaign aims to use this 30 period to promote positive mental health across the borough and signpost residents to the many services available to them.
During the campaign, Treasure Sefton are encouraging local residents to not only talk about mental health, but share images, videos and stories about places across Sefton that have a positive impact on their mental health.
To get involved, tell us about your favourite place and tweet it along with a photograph to @TreasureSefton using the hashtag #TreasureSefton #30DaysofSeftonInMind or alternatively email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The campaign is led by Sefton Council and supported by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Southport and Formby CCG and Sefton CVS.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said:
“Last year the 30 Days of Sefton in Mind was hugely successful with over 100, 000 people viewing the campaign on social media.
“Poor mental health can present itself in many different ways and for that reason the methods people use to deal with it can be very different. Unfortunately, social isolation and depression often come hand in hand, we hope that by creating a positive mental health map, we can signpost not only to services, but also to locations that can truly promote a positive state of mind.”
