Mental Health Awareness Workshop

mens-mental-health1

Tuesday 14 November at 2pm- 3.30pm
United Reformed Church Hall, Bradford on Avon

An interactive session, focusing on how to improve and maintain mental health & wellbeing.

The Public Health team at Wiltshire Council have developed some tools to help raise awareness of mental health both in the workplace and in communities.

We are able to offer to Area Boards and other community groups a session which is ideally about 90 minutes long.

The session takes inspiration in its approach and ethos from the extremely successful Alzheimers’ Society ‘Dementia Friends’ programme and is designed to deliver community awareness raising, increase understanding and reduce stigma and discrimination.

The session itself is interactive and suitable for both professionals and members of the public. It involves some group activities and video clips as well as information about mental health and how to keep yourself well. It focusses strongly on how to improve and maintain wellbeing and mental health and uses tools like the Five Ways to Wellbeing http://www.neweconomics.org/projects/entry/five-ways-to-well-being
