Celebrate World Mental Health Day with MindWell
MindWell is one year old on this year's World Mental Health Day (WMHD) - Tuesday 10 October 2017. The theme this year is wellbeing at work and there are lots of ways you can get involved.
Join us in Leeds Market
We will be hosting a stall and wellbeing space in Leeds Kirkgate Market (food stall hall), Tuesday 10 October, 10am-4pm. Come and find out more about MindWell and explore different ways of improving your wellbeing at work. Phoenix Health and Wellbeing will be offering free chair massages between 12-2pm (first come, first served). We will also be joined by Jamie's Ministry of Food - come and get some ideas for healthy snacks and food that will improve your mood.
You can also find out about WMHD events happening across the city on the Forum Central website.
