'No shame' in getting help for a mental health illness

A man from Carlisle is urging people who live with stress, panic, anxiety or depression to seek help.

Barrie Osgood says since his diagnosis, he has benefited from a mixture of medication, and from going to Ways to Wellbeing courses.

The courses, run by The Cumbria Partnership NHS Trust, have been attended by more than 700 people since they launched .

In Cumbria, about 125,000 people will be affected by a mental health illness during their lifetime.

Cumbria Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man from Carlisle who's been missing for nearly a fortnight.

Caspar Capel, 43, was last seen at Eden Housing, Penrith, on Wednesday 14 January 2015.

It's believed he may be in the Brampton or Penrith area.

He's described as white, of slim build, with short black hair and a beard.

He was last seen wearing a dark jacket with green coloured sleeves, black trousers and a flat cap.

“It has now been nearly a fortnight since Mr Capel went missing, and we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

“I would encourage anyone who may have seen Mr Capel to get in touch with any information they may have. I would also urge Mr Capel if he sees this appeal to let us know he is safe and well.”
