Friday 6th October 2017, 10.45 am (for an 11.00 am start) to 5.00 pm at Cullercoats Crescent Club, Victoria Crescent, Cullercoats, NE30 4PN

This free event is organised by a collaborative partnership involving a variety of mental health organisations, including mental health providers and service users across North Tyneside; they range from charities, voluntary sector and statutory agencies.

This year’s local theme for WMHD is ‘Survive, Thrive, Be Alive’, inspired by the Maya Angelou quote “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

The organisers will support service users and survivors to have their voice heard and be instrumental in shaping and developing mental health services by promoting their views and opinions in a friendly, safe environment. There will be creative and interactive activities, including art, music, laughter yoga and poetry. There will be presentations by the Samaritans, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland, a Community Treatment Team, Northumberland and Tyneside Mind, North Tyneside Recovery College, Age UK and Key Enterprises, among others.

The event will be a fun and informative day for anyone with an interest in Mental Health. Whether you can make all or part of the day, we hope you can join us at Cullercoats Crescent Club – there is no need to book and a buffet lunch is provided.
