Campaign aims to ‘bring sunshine’ to East Lancs
3:02pm Tuesday 3rd June 2014 in News
COMEDIANS Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise will feature in a new campaign to improve emotional health in Lancashire.
Bring Yourself Sunshine, run by Lancashire County Council, will continue until the end of June.
According to council chiefs, research says people with higher levels of wellbeing are more likely to make a positive contribution to their community, have better relationships with friends, family, work colleagues and people around them.
Poor levels of mental health are linked to illnesses such as heart disease, strokes and liver disease. Pendle county councillor Azhar Ali, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “Bring Yourself Sunshine sounds like it's a fun campaign, but there's a serious message behind it.”
