Editor’s notes

This is a collaborative project supported by many partner organisations that run projects across Bath & North East Somerset to support wellbeing and mental health. The Wellbeing Festival is based on the World Mental Health Day events that have been run across B&NES over many years. Normally this event would happen in October but this year in an attempt to harness the good weather it is being run in the summer sunshine.
