NEPO to Climb a Mountain for Mental Health North East

NEPO’s charity of the year is Mental Health North East (MHNE). MHNE works to improve and protect mental health services in the region. They provide training to tackle mental health stigma by helping employers, managers and work colleagues understand more about mental health problems and the realities of living with them.

On Friday 28 July, a group from NEPO will climb the 3000ft summit of Skiddaw Mountain in the Lake District. As the sixth highest peak in England this will be no walk in park...
