Mental Health Matters

Resources to help you look after your mind and body 

 

Are you interested in … Mental Health Matters – in Bradninch and Hele?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

!f so, please consider joining the growing informal interest group hosted by Bradninch Together in partnership with the Town Council and Network Rail – see below.

So much in our lives is dependent on good mental health and many things become difficult when we are struggling. Our Town has been touched by the tragedies at the Hele Crossing and other adversities and our aim is to see what we can do to cultivate care in our community - Together.

It is very difficult at present to arrange a meeting so as a beginning, we would like to invite any and all to join an online Mental Health Matters interest group.

This will enable us to share useful information, suggest links with available supports and local resources and invite you to participate in helping us choose what opportunities to bring to the Town. For example, we anticipate being able to invite people to Mental Health First Aid and suicide awareness training and other educational and personal supports for health, resilience and recovery. Your interest, concerns and questions will shape what is valued and sought for the Town.

There are no fees or expectations and you can leave the group any time.

If you are interested to know more and join in please let us know at mentalhealthmatters@bradninchtogether.org.uk

We will also be posting an open invitation to join a zoom based conversation / consultation chaired by Anthony Richards to give space for us to discuss these matters together … all are welcome either to sit in and listen or participate as you wish.

 

All good wishes

Glenn Roberts, Sophie West and Kate Beith
