Mental Health Awareness Week 2019
It’s Mental Health Awareness week this week (13-19 May) and our services have been busy holding events to think, and talk, about mental health.
Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week takes place every year and this year’s theme is Body Image – how people think and feel about their bodies.
Waterside Lodge Recovery Centre – one of our mental health services based in Leytonstone, London – hosted an indoor beach party on Tuesday (14th) to discuss this year’s mental health awareness week’s theme of Body Image.
They chose a beach party theme because every body is beach body ready!
Customers and staff decorated the room, it looked lovely. They talked about body image and how not to believe all the photos they see in magazines. There was holiday music playing in the background (The Beach Boys of course!), and everyone played a few games, it was very competitive!!
Staff and customers wore green ribbons, made by Activities Coordinator Margaret and a customer of the service. A good time was had by all.
