In support of World Mental Health Day in October, some of our Mental Health Champions are joining the South East Wales Managers Patch day to facilitate a short session talking about mental health.

Mental Health Champions from the Cardiff region and Central Services will:

  • Run a short awareness session on Mental Health
  • Talk about the Mental Health Champions Network in mirus
  • Show the Wellbeing Hub and how to get there
  • Have some fun with some quizzes to test your knowledge on mental health, and something that is a bit of a surprise!

We hope you can join and enjoy the session.

Staff can find out more about the Mental Health Champions network at mirus by visiting the Wellbeing Hub.

For more details contact Jill Stephenson or Aimee Price.


Why your Mental Health is so important

Being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.

If you’re in good mental health, you can:

  • make the most of your potential
  • cope with life
  • play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends.

Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’ and it’s just as important as good physical health.

Everyone is different. You may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel weighed down by it for a long time.

Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same. It can change as circumstances change and as you move through different stages of your life.

There’s is still a stigma attached to mental health problems. This means that people feel uncomfortable about them and don’t talk about them much. Many people don’t even feel comfortable talking about their feelings.

But it’s healthy to know and say how you’re feeling.
