World Mental Health Day (WMHD) is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy and is an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health. This year, the theme is, ‘Mental Health begins with me!’
Emmanuel Centre Co-Ordinator Barbara Harris said the event was host to a beautiful mixture of information, sharing, hospitality and spirituality, presented by experienced and humorous Mental Health Provider, Tasha Broomhall from Blooming Minds.
“The little church was filled with a large group of people for the two sessions before lunch, and finishing with Mass in the afternoon,” Ms Harris said.
Ms Harris explained that sessions for the day included information on how to have a conversation with someone you are concerned about, at work or in our personal life – which could be awkward.
