Sometimes all it takes to clear a befuddled mind is to spend some time in the great outdoors. Of course, it’s not always that easy but there are lots of things we can do to look after our own mental health.

Kerrie and Kat are both Mental Health Specialist Advisors with the Pluss Mental Health team in Devon; Opportunities.

On a rare opportunity to enjoy some autumnal Devon sunshine together, the pair went for a stroll along the beach at Teignmouth where they had a chance to catch up and chat about their work, and what mental health really means….


Kat and Kerrie are members of the team delivering support for Pluss Opportunities, a service which covers Torbay and South Devon.
