Out and about in Essex for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019
Partnership working – Spreading the word!
HeadsUp celebrated Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 by sharing the theme of ‘Body Positivity’ throughout Essex with information stands in shopping centres communicating positive messages about our bodies and general wellbeing with members of the community.
HeadsUp also co-organised two events in Mid and North Essex with Health in Mind (Mid Essex IAPT) and Mid and North East Essex Mind. By partnership working in this way we were able to reach a broader audience for our wellbeing workshops. HeadsUp, IAPT and Mind had the opportunity to promote their services but along with the varied organisations in attendance we could also provide an information market place all about enhancing wellbeing and good Mental Health.
Across the whole week we chatted with a variety of people and took details from 20+ people who believed they might benefit from the support HeadsUp can provide them in taking a step back into job searching, training or employment.
We had great feedback from both members of the public attending workshops and about the event in general which just goes to shows what can be achieved when working in collaboration.
