Working together and winning
Last month saw the celebration of World Mental Health Day and HeadsUp worked with IAPT, MIND and Samaritans to bring information about services available in the local area. We were stationed at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford and also attended an EPUT recruitment event in West Essex where we discussed our services and the support available to anyone that needs us. We are always trying to promote positive mental wellbeing and often give tips on how to maintain good mental wellbeing on our social media channels, and we of course encourage our own HeadsUp participants to get fresh air when they can and chat to others about their experiences.
Along with staff being out and about we also had a photography competition for participants of the HeadsUp project with the photo entries representing ‘What wellbeing means to me’ our winning participants photo is above and had the sentence ‘ Majestic blooms of Cherry blossom appear in early Spring. Bringing with them hope of sunnier days and the potential of delicious tasting fruit.’ You may have seen this and other photos on our social media channels on the day! We should all take time out of our day to day activities to reflect and concentrate of our wellbeing as your mental health is important. For some, taking the time to go outside and reflect in the fresh air is very beneficial, taking your phone or camera to capture some of these moments we see outside can be very therapeutic
