Mental Health in an Unequal World

We celebrated World Mental Health Day at our Waterside Lodge Recovery Centre by having an activity filled day.

Customers at the residential Service in Leytonstone, spent a lovely morning playing bingo, where everyone won a prize.  Then one of our customers sang a song that was all about her mental health; she sang it rap style!

This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’ and customers and support workers talked about mental health and the inequalities!

Staff, with the help of customers, made some scales (out of recycled items found around the house) to demonstrate inequalities, which generated some really good conversations.

All customers had positive things to say; they felt that we are all equal, which is great.

This World Mental Health Day have some conversations with others about mental health and how it affects us all.
