Next week we will be focusing on mental health and the positive effects of spending time with others; the opportunity to talk, laugh, learn, share challenges and connect with people in the local community.

Many different things affect our mental health, from the effects of the pandemic, energy bills, the cost of living crisis to world issues. In addition, loneliness and isolation impacts many and is a major cause of mental ill health. This in turn makes people feel more isolated and less able to engage with everyday life. We’re here to help people find ways to break that cycle and begin connecting positively for their health.

During the week, the Centre team will help build awareness about mental health.  Visitors will learn how to access the right support, use self- care techniques and become involved in groups and activities that will lift spirits and improve low mood. Here is a taster of the many things on offer.
