North Tyneside World Mental Health Day will be held on October 9th 2015 between 11am to 8pm at Cullercoats Crescent Club. This years theme is DIGNITY.

We’ll provide lunch and evening buffets at 12.15 and 5.30pm.

Throughout the day there will be creative, fun, thought provoking activities and opportunities to share experiences of mental health issues and service provision.

We have also secured fantastic prizes for a raffle, to help us cover our costs including: a refurbished bike (to fit your needs); days out; hampers; and gift vouchers.

If you or your organisation would like to donate any funds or prizes, they would be gratefully received. All Funds collected will go to cover our costs and any surplus will go towards future events or activities for Service Users and Carers in North Tyneside. Please also see the attached letter.

Due to space constraints you can send/bring your organisational leaflets and publicity and they will be displayed on tables and you can put up posters on the wall. However, if you want to provide a service or activity we can provide space for that, but not the usual market-stall type thing, just tables with info unless you can provide an activity. Please get in touch to discuss further if needed and Please arrive early if you are dropping off leaflets on the day.
