As you’ll know Mental Health Week starts next week - 7 October.
Mental Health Week is an annual, national event that aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing by:
- Encouraging each of us to support and look out for one another
- Promoting mental health discussion – learning the ‘language’ of expressing feelings, good and bad
- Continuing to raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma
This year’s theme is ‘mental health starts where we live, learn, work and play’ and is about supporting family, friends, colleagues and other members of the community.
To launch Mental Health Week activities, everyone is invited to take part in the following event:
Headspace Day event on Thursday 11th October from 3 pm – 5.30 pm - We will be launching the video we made at the same event. The video launch and speeches will begin at 5pm.
