Haringey Libraries will be working alongside clinical psychologists at Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust (Gateway) to deliver community based, drop-in workshops to give residents an opportunity to think more about improving emotional well-being.
The objectives of the workshops are to raise awareness around mental health in the local community through interactive sessions led by clinical psychologists. The initial pilot workshops will be delivered in Wood Green Library and also rolled out to Marcus Garvey Library. Themes covered will include:
● How we become more aware of our mental health
● Factors that impact mental health in helpful and unhelpful ways
● Ways to improve mental health and overall well-being
● What to do if you are worried about your own or someone else’s mental health
Attendees will have opportunities to discuss and ask questions around any other mental health themes they are interested in and want to know more about. The two workshops will be informal and discussion-based with one session for 16-25 year olds and the other session for people above the age of 25.
The first Mental Health Awareness Workshop will take place at Wood Green Library on Thursday 8th July, details below.
Location: Wood Green Library 1st Floor
