Workshops / Awareness days & Community Events

As a Not for Profit Agency, We pride ourselves in bringing Mental Health Awareness to the community. 

We achieve this in various ways.

1)  Workshops.

We run numerous workshops throughout the year, covering different mental health issues. 

All of our workshops are run by fully qualified and registered counsellors and are open to anyone that is interested in attending.

They are great for someone wanting a deeper understanding of their own mental health to someone caring for someone with a Mental health issue, From someone wanting to understand mental health to professionals working within the mental health field.

The workshops are generally held on a Tuesday and run from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm and include refreshments, all handouts emailed to attendees, as well as an attendance certificate.

Price : £30 a ticket, 

All current workshop details can be found on either further down page, our facebook page, twitter page (click icons at top of page for direct link), eventbrite or at our Laindon Centre.

2) Awareness Days.

We also run awareness days throughout the year, 

These are generally linked to issues regarding Mental health, Isolation and community cohesion.

As we are also a HIRC centre, we run Hate crime awareness days. 

If the community approaches us and feels they would like to raise awareness for the community regarding an issue, we are open and try our best to host the event.

3) Community Events.

Community Events are a really important part of us and our beliefs. 

We are regularly invited to attend community events and like to say yes to these.

We feel this is enabling us to reach more of the community in an open and public way.

whilst also breaking down the stigma that can be attached to Mental health.

Showing the public that their Mental health is just as important as their physical health and informing them that Mental health comes in differing degrees.
