Clive Stone, Chief Executive of Oakleaf, said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating 21 years as a charity this year and marking the occasion with a visit from His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex.

“Mental illness affects all of us in some way or another. By integrating our clients into society and helping them re-enter the workplace through training and confidence-building activities, we not only dramatically improve lives but also educate others about mental illness and what help is available.

"We’re delighted that the Royal Family have taken such a keen interest in mental health and we really hope this visit will continue to raise awareness and reduce the stigma for those who are marginalized by society.”
