Meet your local mental healthcare managers
An opportunity to meet the managers who run local mental and social healthcare services in Herefordshire is being arranged by Governors of ²gether NHS Foundation Trust (²gether).
The free event will take place on 13 October at The Green Dragon Hotel, Hereford, HR4 9BG.
It is being held to mark World Mental Health Day – a global celebration of mental health education, awareness and advocacy.
²gether’s mental health team and local charities will be on hand to offer information and suggestions on how to maintain and improve emotional wellbeing, as well as giving advice on accessing appropriate local services.
Refreshments will be available from 5:30pm, with the event running between 6pm and 8pm.
Dawn Lewis, ²gether’s Public Governor for Herefordshire said: “I wanted to mark World Mental Health Day by holding a very important event where people can hear from, meet and ask questions to the managers who run their local NHS mental healthcare services.”
Metal health is one of society’s last taboos even though one in four people will experience some form of mental illness during their lives – whether that’s depression, anxiety, stress, memory loss or a more complex condition.
Dawn continued: “There’s a lot of good work being achieved to tackle mental health stigma but we can all do more. I hope that this event will offer another opportunity for people to learn more about local services. I encourage everyone to come along, ask questions and get the information they may need for themselves, a family member or friend.”
