Mindspace Week at the Virtual Village Hall, 10-14 October

Monday 10th October is World Mental Health Day, organised by the World Health Organisation to protect and improve mental health across the world. These continue to be challenging times for our mental wellbeing. From 10-14 October, we invite you to take a little time for yourself for some mindful self-care. Join us here for Mindspace Week when we’ll be exploring the NHS 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing. You’ll find a full programme of caring content, from coaching sessions on managing stress and making social connections, to yoga, meditation, gentle exercise and cooking.
