Let's talk about improving your mental wellbeing

You are invited to take part in next month's online Friday Forum. 

When: Friday, 5th May at 12 noon

It is important to take steps to protect and promote mental health and wellbeing. There are simple steps that we can incorporate into everyday  life that will assist with improving our mental health and reducing levels of stresss. We need to be mindful of our own wellbeing, as well as that of our wider community.

On Friday 5 May, as part of Mindful May, we have an experienced panel ready to answer your questions about a number of important issues, including:

  • tips to reduce stress and anxiety
  • how to improve mental wellbeing using strategies such as mindfulness and volunteering
  • ways to strengthen your resilience to cope with stresses of daily life
  • where to seek help
  • how to identify if someone needs help
