Mind Your Head
Mind Your Head has a busy few months ahead planned. The summer will see the celebration of an important milestone in the organisation's history with the 10th Anniversary Fun Run & Walk. Pre-registration for this event will open towards the end of the month on this website but you can find out more here.
We will be continuing our monthly mental health matters awareness campaigns, which includes monthly focusses on specific mental health & wellbeing topics - this month the focus is Bipolar. We also are finalising plans for this year's Suicide Prevention Awareness Week events as well as work which will target men's mental health awareness. We are also in the process of completing a one off project we are doing in partnership with NHS Grampian, which will see Mind Your Head providing resources for patients and carers from Shetland at Cornhill Hospital.
Increasingly more and more of our time is spent on exploring the best way for support services to be facilitated in Shetland - for both young people and adults. During the first half of 2015, Anouska Civico has been helping the organisation look into the feasability of launching support services for mental health here in Shetland - you can find our more about what has been happening so far here.
