North Tyneside World Mental Health Day 2017

North Tyneside World Mental Health Day 2017 Celebration Event

Friday 6th October 2017, 10.45 am (for an 11.00 am start) to 5.00 pm at Cullercoats Crescent Club, Victoria Crescent, Cullercoats, NE30 4PN.

This free event was organised by a collaborative partnership involving a variety of mental health organisations, including mental health providers and service users across North Tyneside; they range from charities, voluntary sector and statutory agencies, including Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust.

Last year’s local theme for WMHD was ‘Survive, Thrive, Be Alive’, inspired by the Maya Angelou quote “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

The organisers supported service users and survivors to have their voice heard and be instrumental in shaping and developing mental health services by promoting their views and opinions in a friendly, safe environment.  There was creative and interactive activities, including art, music, laughter yoga and poetry.  There were presentations by the Samaritans, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland, a Community Treatment Team, Northumberland and Tyneside Mind, North Tyneside Recovery College, Age UK and Supporting Stars, among others.
