‘Surviving or Thriving’ is the theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week – a week of raising awareness of mental health issues, and disspelling the stigma, promoted nationally by the Mental Health Foundation.
Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem, good mental health is about real peace of mind and resilience in the face of adversity. Mindfulness can make a difference, as many of the comments by participants of our classes and courses reveal.
Making a difference
To mark Mental Health Awareness Week this year we’ve got a busy schedule of new courses – in Liverpool, Southport, Birkenhead and Crosby – taster sessions for members of the Royal British Legion and staff at MyCSP, refresher classes for people who’ve completed a course, and one-to-one tuition with people who aren’t able to attend otherwise.
“If we are going to develop a mentally healthy society, giving people the tools to thrive mentally is .. fundamental.” Mark Rowland, Director of Fundraising and Communications, Mental Health Foundation
Our aim has always been to make mindfulness inclusive, accessible and affordable – empowering people and equipping them with tools to better manage their own mental and emotional wellbeing, enabling them not just to survive but to positively thrive.
