To coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, the Mental Health Social Work Team will be hosting ‘Let’s Talk Mental Health’ for both service providers, and service users.

It will take place on Tuesday 15th May, 10.00am – 4.00pm
The Lantern
Meadow Farm Drive
Sundorne, Shrewsbury

If you would like to be part of this event and have information that you would like to share, or would like to come along on the day, then please get in touch:

  • Mental Health Social Work Team, via the Lantern: 01743 255 895 to book your table or reserve your ticket.

The event will provide a valuable opportunity for service providers and service users to come together in an informal setting, where information can be shared and achievements celebrated. 

With this year’s theme of ‘Stress’, Mental Health Awareness Week focusses not only on those who experience mental ill health, but also on those who support them.

At Let’s Talk Mental Health, your stress relieving tips and suggestions will be welcomed, recorded and shared with all of those who attend on the day.

There will be representatives from a number of organisations, including Crowsmill Craft Centre, on site to share with you how they can help individuals to learn new skills, including woodwork, blacksmithing, welding and archery. Their rural location provides a safe, supportive and friendly environment where the kettle is always on. There are opportunities for individuals to engage with others as little or as much as they would like as they work with their hands to design, create, craft and construct.

If your interest lies in exploring something new, then perhaps you might like to borrow a book from the Human Library? For a Human Library to exist, then it requires human books; people who will tell you their story in an attempt to break down stigma, stereotype and discrimination. This will be the first event for the Shropshire Human Library and we are delighted that they will be joining us at Let’s Talk Mental Health.

There will also be the opportunity to take part in a laughter yoga session, or get a head massage - why not come along and try something new!
