Mental Wellbeing Champion
Welcome to Annabell Webb to the role of Mental Wellbeing Champion, who started work at the beginning of April.
We hope that everyone will make her welcome and that she will be able to make a really significant difference to the mental wellbeing of our whole community.
Mental Wellbeing Week 7-14 October 2017
The next Mental Wellbeing Week is planned for 7-14 October, which aims to continue to raise awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding poor mental health in all ages from toddlers to older residents. We are planning lots of new events, but it you have ideas or suggestions please let us know.
During the wellbeing week we have two great events to help raise funds for the project.
On Saturday 7th October we will get the week going with a Ceilidh featuring the Stomp Happy Tribe.
We round off the week with A relaxed music in a cafe style setting with Jazzitation and the C breezes
During the week in April 2016 we did a survey to help understand the awareness, main concerns and needs about mental wellbeing issues within our community. We now have produced a report on the findings which you can download here.
During the week we stared to compile a set of useful links and will keep adding new ones to the support information page over time.
if you have any suggestions please contact us.
