wellbeing and destress

Mark Gillham, CEO of MIND in Harrow

Do you have a poor body image due to stress in your life? If so, the Council’s De-stress and Emotional Wellbeing FREE workshop, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week, may be able to help you.

Mental Health Awareness Week is from 13 -19 May and people can book spaces now online for the workshop, which takes place on Wednesday 15 May at 2pm at the Civic Centre. The Council is running the workshop, together with MIND in Harrow and the workshop itself will look at how stress affects emotional wellbeing, leading to a poor self and body image.

Mark Gillham, CEO of MIND in Harrow said:

“The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week this year is Body Image – which is a topic that is often discussed in the news and is a complex concern for many people. Research shows that 30 per cent of all adults have felt very stressed by body image to the point where they feel they are unable to cope. This workshop will give practical tips and ways to de-stress and improve our emotional wellbeing.”

Councillor Simon Brown, Lead Member for Adults and Public Health said:

“Currently, two thirds of people experience mental health problems at some point in their lives and how you feel about your body can have a huge impact on your mental health. I’m delighted that MIND in Harrow are jointly presenting this important workshop with us, to raise awareness and help attendees.”

At present, there are only 15 spaces left for this workshop so book your free space at the De-stress and Emotional Wellness workshop

Due to the popularity of this workshop, there will be similar workshops announced over the coming months.
