Surviving or thriving?  Mental Health Awareness Week  8-14 May 2017

Surviving or Thriving 2017

This Mental Health Awareness Week, 8-14 May 2017, we are going to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, we will seek to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health. With people struggling to cope with the demands of life and stuck on getting through the day, we will explore:

  • how many of us are surviving or thriving, and the difference between the two
  • why some communities are under strain and what can be done to support them to thrive
  • what steps we can take to look after our mental health, building resilience to cope with the demands of life.

The Mental Health Service have a week of events which we have based on the Five Ways to Well being.

Including lectures and displays (Keep learning and Take Notice) , a variety of physical activities (Be active) , Tea and Talk at Manannan Court (Give and Connect).

Throughout the week we will also highlight the personal stories of people who are surviving or thriving.
