World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day

Health Promotion will be marking World Mental Health Day, the aim being to continue to raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health and breaking down stigmas/ misconceptions.

This year the focus is on suicide prevention and a number of local groups will be joining together to discuss: who is at risk, what are contributing factors, what can we do (as individuals) to help, and where can we go for more support (professional guidance).

There will be two pitches, one outside the ICC the other at Piazza, from 10am – 2pm. There will also be an unveiling of a memorial bench 12pm at the Alameda Gardens. All are invited to attend.
