A ‘get ²gether’ is being held in Hereford to mark World Mental Health Day.
²gether NHS Foundation Trust, which provides mental and social health care across Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, is organising the event with Trust Public Governors on Friday October 10.
The gathering, at the Kindle Centre, in Belmont Road, will take place from 6 until 8pm and everyone – Trust members, non members, service users, carers and families – is welcome.
It will provide an opportunity to learn more about the services provided to people in Herefordshire, both by ²gether and partner agencies, as well as have a say in how the Trust works.
Dawn Lewis, one of ²gether’s three Governors for Herefordshire, said: “This event is an opportunity to show support for people with mental illness, and find out more about what ²gether does to help those individuals, as well as their carers and families.
“It is being held on World Mental Health Day, which is celebrated all over the world in order to raise awareness about mental health conditions and highlight the huge amount of work going on locally, nationally and internationally to ensure people receive the treatment, advice and support they require.
“We want to see lots of people at the event, so please do join us to talk about these important issues and get involved. You are invited to bring along your friends too – we need to hear your voice and will listen to what you have to say – this, we the Herefordshire Governors, promise you.”
The event will feature presentations from ²gether, as well as partner agencies. There will also be an opportunity to visit stands, ask questions of our Board and Governors, provide feedback and have a say in helping to shape local services.
Dawn is one of three ²gether Governors in Herefordshire. The other Governors for the county are Diane Topham and Adrian Wilcox.
