Health workers, office staff and former soldiers are among hundreds of people who have sought help from a walk-in scheme at a Chesterfield shopping centre which was brought in as part of mental health awareness week.

Voluntary groups and charities joined forces to hold counselling sessions at this pop-up shop in the Pavements Centre - and also to raise awareness about mental health. The scheme is run by Derbyshire County Council and organisers are hoping it will become permanent.
