Events held to raise awareness for World Mental Health Day 2017

  • Walking for Health

Local groups are taking part in a week-long campaign to raise awareness of World Mental Health Day (Tuesday, October 10, 2017).

The events have been organised by the Charnwood Mental Health Network, which includes Charnwood Borough Council.

Sessions will be on offer during the week, including a second birthday celebration by the Loughborough Wellbeing Café which will hold a special evening café.

The event will be held on Tuesday, October 10 from 6-8pm at Loughborough Library.

The café supports adults recovering from or living with mental ill health.

A digital drop-in will also be held at 10am at Loughborough Library, which is designed to help with IT skills and using the internet safely when accessing information online about mental health.

Chris Traill, Strategic Director for Neighbourhoods and Community Wellbeing at the borough Council said: “Issues with mental health are very common which is why we’re committed to providing help and support for those who need it.

“A mental health first aid course and walking groups run by the Council will take place during the week, along with a number of other activities from local organisations.

“All of the sessions are designed to help look after people’s mental and physical wellbeing and improve mental health awareness.”

The full list of events during the campaign is available on the Council website at www.charnwood.gov.uk/mentalhealthday
