World Mental Health Day in Dunstable, Wednesday 10th October 2018, from 11am.
Join us on 10th October for our ‘Market for the Mind’ event in aid of World Mental Health Day, hosted by Impact Mental Health Peer Support and the Grove Theatre.
Covered by BBC3 Counties Radio host, Toby Friedner, the theme for this year’s event is all about providing local people with a ‘Market for the Mind’ – an indoor market providing a variety of stalls themed around tips, suggestions, services and interactive opportunities to help ‘yourselves’ help your wellbeing.
From heathy lifestyle choices to drawing and creating, to free well-being classes to self-help tools; there will be something for everyone at this event.
Old friends and new are welcome to join us in a cuppa and a natter! We’re planning on having more cake than you can shake a stick at, with the odd healthy biscuit thrown in for healthy wellbeing measure.
As well as the Impact team and the lovely people from The Grove, the following people and organisations will be providing demonstrations, advice and more:
- Stevenage Leisure
- Dunstable Musical Theatre Company
- Nature’s Harvest
- Octave Music
- Mindfulness Leighton Buzzard
- Houghton Hall Park
- Himalayan Wellbeing & Salt Lamps
- Loiuse England Acupuncture
- Central Bedfordshire Council – offering information regarding apprenticeships and getting people back to work
More to follow…
For Impact Learners, this is a great opportunity to meet up with those that were on one of your programmes and find out what they’ve been up to, or to bring along your friends and family and talk to one of the Impact team about our programmes.
For people working hard to ensure their staff who are experiencing poor mental wellbeing or are suffering from stress at work, are supported and referred to our programmes, this is a super way in which to get up to speed on new programmes and courses in your area, speak to the team and take some quality time for yourself and your staff!
Whatever your reason for attending, let’s work together on the 10th to help break down the stigma around mental ill health and provide the important opportunities many of us have – and do need – to talk about our illness, and what better way to do this than with tea and cake!
