Upcoming Support and Awareness Events for Mental Health Issues10-May-2017
As part of the growing Mental Health drive taking place locally and beyond, MEGAN CIC invite you to join them for an event to help raise awareness about services which can help with the issues related to Mental Health.
It is recognised that at least a quarter of adults, and one in ten children, are likely to have a mental health problem in any given year. This can have an impact on the lives of tens of millions of people in the UK, and can affect the ability to sustain relationships, to continue working, or simply just to get through the day.
If this concern is challenged with facts to help understand the forms of mental health problems, their causes and solutions; then the labels and barriers relating to Mental Health could also be broken down and more help and support could also be realised.
This coming July, MEGAN CIC will be hosting Your Voice In Mental Health at the St George Hotel, Chatham on 12th July 2017 between 10am-3pm.
A range of Guest Speakers have been invited to share information about local services that are available, take questions and hear feedback. A lunch will also be provided followed by networking as well as the opportunity to write comments, raise issues or leave feedback.
This feedback will be collected in to a report to be circulated to relevant service managers and commissioners. At the time of writing, guest speakers are being finalised for announcement.
For more information, or to book your place, please contact MEGAN on 01634 402077. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
