Richmond Fellowship’s been marking World Mental Health Day (10 October) by showcasing our services and getting out and about in local communities.
On social media, we’ve been shining the spotlight on our Crisis, Supported Housing, Employment, Residential, Social Enterprise and Community Based services across the week with a different video each day.
See the videos on our Facebook page.
The Recovery Focus Group launched its ‘What Does Recovery Mean To You?’ video showcasing some of the amazing recovery stories from across its partner services.
Elsewhere our local services have been out and about around the country.
For example, in Sudbury, our team set up a stand in the local market to raise awareness of the work of the Supported Housing and Community Based service in the area. The event was attended by the local South Suffolk MP James Cartlidge and Mayor of Sudbury Sue Ayres.
Down the road in Cambridgeshire, Anouska Binns, Team Manager at our Fenland Wellbeing service was interviewed by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire breakfast show presenter Dottie McLeod about the range of services available in the local area. Listen to the interview below.
Meanwhile on the Isle of Wight, our team there arranged a resilience session in partnership with POA Learning.
Natalie Bevan, Isle of Wight Locality Manager said:
“Working for a mental health charity we always want to support those using our services as best we can, but sometimes it’s easy to forget about taking care of ourselves. The resilience training from POA Learning was a helpful reminder of how to help take care of ourselves in a very informative and easy to understand way”.
In the North, our Derby City Life Links service was featured on BBC Radio Derby. Locality Manager Christine Lawrence spoke on their drive time programme about the launch of the new peer support and recovery service. Listen to the interview below.
Remember, at Richmond Fellowship every day is World Mental Health Day.
