heart coffeeMental Health Week raises community awareness about mental health issues and is held every October each year to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October.
The aim of Mental Health Week is to promote social and emotional wellbeing to the community, encouraging people to maximise their health potential, enhancing the coping capacity of communities, families, individuals and increasing mental health recovery. The 2016 Mental Health Week is being held from 8 to 15 October. The 2016 theme is Act-Belong-Commit with a focus on suicide prevention: ‘Together we can save lives’.

Recognising this vitally important work within our community, Chenrezig Institute’s Wellbeing Centre has invited Bryan Peck to share his experience and research about mental health and illness and how we as individuals can care for our selves and others. Let’s open a discussion that mental health difficulties such as depression and anxiety are a normal part of life and society, and that improving our response to those difficulties is vital for us, and those around us. Mental health issues are not a life sentence.

Let’s open a discussion that depression and anxiety are normal in society and there is something you can do about it. Mental health issues don’t have to be a life sentence.

Friday  14 October 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm, at  the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute.
