This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week runs from the 9th – 15th of May. The theme this year is loneliness and how it affects individuals and communities.
Recovery Devon has asked local community groups, charities and organisations like us that have a focus on all areas of mental wellbeing to join them at Exeter Library. The HUB team from Living Options Devon will be attending this event. We’ll be answering questions and offering information about our services for disabled and Deaf people in Devon.
Recovery Devon has invited Jaki King from Adoddle, the Community Map service. She will be there to explain what it is and show people how to use it.
Author Emma Goude will also be there to promote her book ‘My Beautiful Psychosis’ as well as artist Sarah McDonald with her Positivity Pebbles.
This is a free event, there’s no need to book.
It will be a great opportunity for you to learn about the support and services we, and other organisations, can offer you. You’ll be able to connect with people who can help you find support if you’re feeling the effects of loneliness.
Meet us at Mental Health Awareness Week Fair at Exeter Central Library, Tuesday 10th May. We’ll be there from 10 am to 2 pm, come and say hello!
