A number of expert speakers will join together for a mental health conference in Thetford.

To be held on August 24, at the Carnegie Room, the free event will focus on loneliness and isolation, which has been identified as one of the biggest risks to mental health.

Organiser Tod Sullivan, Lowestoft and Waveney mental health ambassador, said: 'We have gathered a quite outstanding set of speakers and plenary sessions to discuss this issue and hopefully create some opportunities for more community engagement and support.'

Speakers include Dan Biddle, a survivor of the 7/7 terror attacks in London who suffered with PTSD, and Josh Connolly, who was the child of an alocholic and regularly speaks about the effect that had on him.

Also speaking will be former EDL member Ivan Humble, who now warns against radicalisation, artist Katherine Gilmartin, and Nicky Martin, who will talk about the physiology of mental health.
