Our Health and Wellbeing Lead, Sally, attended the Worthing Mental Health Expo last month. The event was held at Rooms in the Guidlbourne Centre over Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th of October.
The expo included talks from experts, Worthing's first Mental Health Expo with stalls and staff from mental health organisations on hand to talk and answer questions, as well as training courses.
I attended the expo on Wednesday and it was excellent! It was an event that both raised awareness and celebrated World Mental Health Day on the Tuesday.
The stalls were amazing. I chatted with each and every professional – they covered such a wide range of mental health issues and the staff were outstanding and extremely knowledgeable.
I attended two workshops – Minding my business (hosted by West Sussex MIND) which looked at Mental Health in the workplace, and First Aid for Mental Health Strategies (hosted by Andy’s Angels). Both were extremely helpful and very relevant for everyone working in, affected by or even interested in mental health.
Well done to those who participated!
