Let's tackle loneliness together!
Published: 3 May 2022
Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place from Monday 9 May to Friday 13 May and this year’s theme is loneliness. Mental health is something that we’re all mindful of, but it can be hard to figure out what works best for you when you’re struggling.
Connecting with other people and your community is fundamental to protecting your mental health and we need to find better ways of tackling the epidemic of loneliness. We can all play a part in this.
We’re hosting a week of free activities, all taking place outdoors, at our community garden, Grow Speke and across our communities, for you to take part in. Meet new people, make friends and try something new!
Want to get more active? Join us for a short, gentle walk. Walking is a great way to increase your physical activity, meet new people and explore your local area. Meet us on Monday 9 May, at 12noon at Garston Leisure Centre as we take a stroll around Garston Park.
Whether you’re a new or experienced artist, Sketch Club is full of tips and advice and the best way to learn how to draw. Join us at Grow Speke on Wednesday 11 May at 11am.
The community garden is in full bloom and it’s the perfect place to take five, unwind and give sketching a go. Jayne from Dead Pigeon Gallery will host the class and she’ll demonstrate different sketching techniques that you can put into practice on the day!
Coffee and Chat
Our weekly coffee morning has headed outdoors, and the group meets at Grow Speke during the warmer months. A hot drink and a natter can do us all the world of good. Come along and join us on Friday 13 May at 10.30am. We’ll make the brews; all you need to do is turn up!
Are you nervous about attending events for the first time?
We love to welcome new and familiar faces along to all our events. But we understand that for some, attending events, however big or small, can be tough. If you haven’t attended before, but you would like to, why not pop along to say hello? There is no pressure to stay for the whole session.
Our Wellbeing Officer, Thomas Hayes, is a friendly face who will be on hand to calm your nerves and answer any questions you might have. For more information, get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
