Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week took place from Monday 9th May to Sunday 15th May, and this year’s theme was loneliness.  During the pandemic lots of people experienced loneliness, and sadly 1 in 4 adults will be affected by mental health problems during their lives. During Mental Health Awareness week, the CPF Reconnect Focus Group focused on their mental health and wellbeing by connecting with nature and the outdoors.  We spent some time digging, planting and painting; activities which are really good for physical and emotional wellbeing.  The group also took part in a wellbeing game and touched on what makes us sad, happy and angry. We finished off our session with a lovely walk in the sunshine.
