Event: What makes a healthy community?

Event: 12 November 2016, 15:00 - 16:30

Recommended for: People involved in neighbourhood watches or community-based groups. Also carers, volunteers, choirs, and event managers.



What can we do to promote a sense of community and belonging for people within our society?

In this workshop we’ll work from a mental health perspective to consider how people feel included, but also some of the often subtle ways in which people can feel excluded and how we can overcome such issues.

The workshop represents an opportunity to share and discuss ideas, learn about the challenges faced by people with mental health issues, but also how we might promote inclusion, change perceptions, and how you can help to make a difference.

Presented by: Dr Nick Wrycraft, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health
