AWARD-winning actor Rosie Day is supporting an event in the city focusing on wellbeing and mental health.

The Outlander star, who is ambassador for teenager mental health charity steam 4, is the special guest speaker at the Salisbury Samaritans Supporting Your Mental Health free event today (Saturday, July 6) at Salisbury Arts Centre, 10am until 4pm.

stem4 is the developer of the award-winning Calm Harm app, which helps young people manage the urge to self-harm. Rosie will speak about the work the charity does.

Professionally, Rosie has also co-starred with Sarah Jessica Parker in rom-com All Roads Lead to Rome and is starring alongside Uma Thurman in Down A Dark Hall. She has been named a Screen International Star of Tomorrow and Instyle BAFTA Rising Star.

The event has a full programme of talks on topics including mindfulness training and the benefits of the arts on emotional wellbeing, as well as the impact of stress and anxiety on health, and dealing with substance misuse.

A team of volunteers from the Salisbury Samaritans is organising the event.

Samaritans volunteer and one of the event organisers Joanna Wilkinson, said: "

“Samaritans get many calls each day from people who are suffering from MH issues and struggling to get treatment and support. Therefore we felt that our local area would benefit from an inclusive day for sufferers, carers and those just interested in finding out more, showcasing what is on offer in our community.

“We hope that young and old will benefit from this ‘free to access day’ with talks from local health professionals, strategies for coping with mental health issues and stands from local organisations."
