A word from the YANA Chair

“Never has a charity been better named for this difficult time than YANA (You Are Not Alone). YANA relies on our army of volunteers so thank you for all your help in the past and hoping you can help us even more in the future once lockdown allows us to get out and about.

We have been using this time to plan and coordinate how we can better reach even more people who are struggling. We want more comprehensive distribution of our YANA leaflet, stickers and more in order to reach every agricultural business and GP surgery in our area.

We plan more get-togethers, Mental Health First Aid training courses and wider publicity. If you know of any friends or colleagues who would like to help with all this then please use your usual contacts or email

I think we will find that YANA is needed even more.” Henry Kilvert, YANA Chair.
