14-20 May | North Tyneside

There are many events intended to raise awareness about mental health now taking place, but are the lives of those in mental distress becoming any easier? Launchpad North Tyneside – a user-led group that works to promote the voices of those affected by mental health difficulties in North Tyneside – is not convinced. As an alternative to Mental Health Awareness Week, they are consequently coordinating Mental Health Action Week. Between 14 May and 20 May, North Tyneside will play host to a week of free ‘actions’. These include:

  • Drop in gym sessions
  • Arts and crafts
  • Bereavement and loss workshop and coffee morning
  • Peer support groups
  • Meditation taster
  • Picnic in the park (19 May)

Some ‘actions’ may require you to book in advance. Visit the Launchpad website for more details on when and where activities are taking place, and how to sign up.
