A mental health support group has received a boost after being named as the Stowmarket town mayor’s charity for the year.
Councillor Dave Muller has chosen the Enigma peer support group – which holds weekly sessions in Stowmarket and Hadleigh – as one of his charities.
The group, which was set up in 2014, supports people from across Suffolk and Norfolk who suffer from issues such as anxiety, depression and emotional difficulties.
Mr Muller said: “I went to visit the group and I was extremely impressed with the work they are doing supporting people with mental health issues.
“As we know, there has been quite a lot of criticism regarding help for people suffering from mental health issues in the media over recent months.
