During 17th, 18th and 19th May Mind Monmouthshire held a series of events for Mental Health Awareness Week 2016.
Tuesday: there was a stall outside Abergavenny market from 9:30 to 3:00 giving out leaflets and advice as well as Mind Monmouthshire ‘goodies’ such as trolley coin keyrings, mugs, coasters, stress busters and cake. Over 200 people visited the stall and many completed mental health questionnaires.
Wednesday: staff spent 3 hours walking around Abergavenny raising awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week and the services Mind Monmouthshire offer, and distributing ‘goody bags’ containing leaflets and all the Mind Monmouthshire ‘goodies’.
Thursday: an open day was held at Mind Monmouthshire’s office in Cross Street with activities, stands and representatives from different projects giving out advice and information. Feedback received was positive and informative.
In the coming months look out for Mind Monmouthshire staff in Caldicot, Chepstow and Monmouth as well as Abergavenny’s farmers’ market!
