On Saturday 10 October Together For You will be celebrating World Mental Health Day with a FREE event in Guildhall Square in Londonderry / Derry from 12noon until 4pm. This year the theme is ‘Dignity in Mental Health’. Together For You is a mental health and wellbeing project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
The event will be opened by Elisha McCallion the Mayor of the new Derry City & Strabane District Council at 12noon. Throughout the afternoon local shoppers can stop, have a cup of tea and a natter with our team of volunteers, take part in some arts and crafts, courtesy of the Community Arts Partnership, watch and listen to live music or take part in laughter yoga, facilitated by the Sunshine Project. Other activities include Facepainting (from 2pm – 4pm) and music provided by Drive105.
By talking about mental health, and seeking help early for yourself or others, we start to reduce the stigma around mental ill-health. As well as being able to take part in some of these activities it will also be an opportunity for you to find out more about the free services available under the Together For You project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
Together For You promotes positive mental health and wellbeing through awareness raising and support services. Our services include befriending support, bereavement support groups, specialist counselling (Trauma, Relationship and CBT); mental health awareness sessions; support for carers, peer led support for LGBT communities and volunteering.
So come and visit us in Guildhall Square on Saturday 10th October at 12noon and celebrate World Mental Health Day with Together For You.
Throughout the week, our partners will also be holding a number of activities and events to celebrate World Mental Health Day. Watch this space for further information.
