This year the theme of MHAW 2021 is Nature. During this pandemic, millions of us have experience a mental health problem, or seen a loved one struggle. We have a lot planned for the week so keep an eye on our social media channels over the week and get involved.
Below we have an outline of some of the things we have going on for the week:
Monday Mindful Moments - (2 - 3pm)
This Monday Mindful Moments session will be done over Zoom, but we want to encourage everybody to be outdoors for this session. Be it in your garden, at the park, or even just by an open window!
Meeting ID: 969 2664 8954
Peer Support Volunteer Celebration - (2 - 3:30pm)
This year's theme is nature, and to fit the theme we will be meeting at Stamford Park - taking in the nature around us while out for a walk.
Volunteers with TOG Mind are encouraged to take a short walk around and share open discussions around the benefits of nature to mental health. This is a celebration and a chance to meet other volunteers, we hope as many volunteers as possible can join us!
Catch Your Very Own Sun - (4:30 - 5:30pm)
Our Youth in Mind team will be hosting a Craft and Wellbeing session - learn how to create your very own Sun Catcher! Email us at Take5 [at] togmind.org to join in.
(this was previously incorrectly listed under Wednesday, we apologise for the mix-up)
Walk & Talk - (1 - 3pm)
Always outdoors and surrounded by nature. We will be exploring Stamford Park in the Spring, as we haven't had the chance yet to see this beautiful space in this glorious season. Also, weather depending, we can end it with either a hot drink or an ice cream!
Supporting the Community
Our Community Engagement team will be out and about throughout the whole week supporting clients with Dementia and Mental Health conditions.
Getting Artsy! - (1:30 - 3:30pm)
An Arts & Crafts session taking place over Zoom - getting artsy by incorporating nature into art with pressed leaf drawings. A pressed leaf drawing is where you press a leaf onto a piece of paper and then draw around it to incorporate the leaf into part of the picture. If you'd like to know more, contact us on 0161 330 9223 and ask for Caroline.
