Our 2015 Comedy for Depression event took place at The Union Chapel on 23rd April. We would like to say a huge thank you to all acts that took part; Reginald D Hunter, Angela Barnes, Hal Cruttenden, David Morgan, Matt Richardson and Darius Davies. Of course the night wouldn't have happened without the the dedicated organisers, energetic volunteers and the amazing audience.
This award recognises the vital role of the mental health voluntary sector in delivering services which reduce the need for people to access primary and acute care.
Neil told us why he'd nominated his girlfriend Charlotte to win an award.“I was totally lost in the wilderness and going around in circles.

Charlotte was the one who untangled it all… she bought me back to life.”
