Maybe you were able to join with us in enjoying the busy atmosphere, a good cuppa and delicious cakes? We had a really successful morning and would like to thank Waitrose for providing our cakes and snacks, special thanks to Waitrose Partners Peter, Cathy, April, Lynne and Sean for volunteering to help us out on the day with signposting people and serving refreshments, as did Mendip Ladies Group and various other volunteers, a huge thank you to you all.
It was really great sharing our experiences and promoting the 'Time To Talk' campaign which is still ongoing throughout the day. The idea is to encourage people to talk for 5 minutes with others about mental health, how it affects them, how they view their mental health, strategies that help them and might help others and so on.... We can ALL act now in lessening the stigma attached to mental illness and often listening to others is all that needed to show support and understanding.
If you would like to talk to us, or share what you are doing to promote mental health and wellbeing then please do get in touch. You can comment here, message us on Facebook or Twitter, email or telephone us, see the 'contact us' tab for details. We would love to see you, so why not arrange to call in for an informal chat or to have a look around?
