Every year we celebrate World Mental Health Day on 10th October. World Mental Health Day is about raising awareness of mental health and driving positive change for everyone’s mental health. It’s also a chance to talk about mental health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to get help if you are struggling.
To help raise awareness and support World Mental Health Day 2023 we are holding a special Men in Shed's session, see details below.

Find your little big thing for your mental health
There are little things we can all do to lift our mood or ease our anxiety – we need to find what works for us. This could be as simple as taking a walk in nature, prioritising our sleep or opening up to a friend. Our little thing, if we keep doing it, will make a big difference to how we feel.
