MKFM Column: MKFM launch MK Mental Health Hour

Every Sunday at 7pm, MKFM alongside Arthur Ellis: Mental Health Support will discuss a variety of topics and give expert practical advice to listeners…

Arthur Ellis: Mental Health Support (@ ArthurEllisMHS) is a local organisation in Milton Keynes providing realistic and practical ways to identify, support and manage mental health at any age.

In partnership with MKFM and Thomas Connolly, Arthur Ellis are bringing the people of Milton Keynes the MK Mental Health Hour, an hour every Sunday evening from 7pm where they will be discussing a variety of topics with expert guests, not just to bring awareness to the issues we all face but to provide expert, practical advice.

Arthur Ellis started just over a year ago in Milton Keynes and have won national awards from Business in the Community, part of the Princes Trust, and their training has seen them win Best New Business across Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire.

Jon, Founder of Arthur Ellis experienced his own difficulties growing up, living with an undiagnosed disorder for 20 years, not being able to access help. When he was finally diagnosed, his attitude towards life and his purpose changed.

Jon said: “As a nation, we HAVE to know what to do if someone is experiencing difficulties, not feeling awkward or confused about how we can help. “We need to be more selfsufficient and not just rely on our services, like the NHS who are completely underfunded and struggling to cope.

“Let’s bring hope, positivity and celebrate recovery and management of conditions rather than putting a focus on the negative.”

Darren Dorrington, Managing Director of MKFM, said: “We are pleased to be working alongside Arthur Ellis.

“Their expertise in conjunction with mental health professionals will highlight the importance of discussing mental health while being able to signpost people to receive appropriate support.

“The Mental Health Hour will not only bring organisations together but will offer practical help to our listeners.”

MK Mental Health Hour airs every Sunday at 7pm and will be podcast for the MKFM website thereafter alongside guides to download.
