Celebrating World Mental Health Day
It was World Mental Health day on 10 October and to celebrate, Waterside Lodge – our mental health recovery centre in Leytonstone – decided to hold a disco and dance the day away!
It was great fun and customers boogied until they couldn’t dance any more!! They also had a go at hulu-hooping (that’s work in progress!). The main aim was to have fun and be able to socialise.
During the day, customers and staff held a discussion around talking about issues – having someone you can trust to speak openly about how you are feeling, and that you are not the only person that is having a bad day. They also talked about finding ways of distracting yourself and doing something you enjoy.
We are here to help, we are here to listen, and tomorrow is another day.
