Penny Black in Burnley is the venue for a day of music in aid of men's support group Casual Minds-Matter

Casual Minds-Matter was launched in December by five friends from Burnley connected through the loss of someone close to them from suicide.

They joined together to form a support network to banish the stigma attached to men's mental health and the group was formed.

Open sessions are held and those who attend are able to talk about anything on their mind. More information about the group can be found by going to its facebook page.
