We were super excited to attend the annual Mental Health Awareness Week Fair run by Recovery Devon this month!
The event was held at Exeter Central Library. on May 10th. The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week was loneliness and how it affects individuals and communities.
Recovery Devon asked us to join them at the Exeter event, and as we haven’t been able to get to events since the start of the lockdowns, we jumped at the chance! Some of the HUB team from Living Options Devon attended in our bright orange gear, so we couldn’t be missed! We answered questions and offered information about our disabled and Deaf services in Devon, it was great to be meeting people again. It was also a great opportunity for us to meet other organisations and partners from around Devon and Exeter.
We had a great time at the event and look forward to meeting more of you at upcoming events, which we’ll publicise as they happen. We look forward to seeing you soon.
