Wellbeing initiatives to mark World Mental Health Day
DURING our adult lives, a large proportion of our time is spent at work and is one of the factors determining our overall wellbeing. Globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression, the leading cause of disability. More than 260 million are living with anxiety disorders. Mental health in the workplace is the theme of World Mental Health Day on Tuesday 10 October 2017.
To mark the event, Thurrock Adult Community College will be offering workplace initiatives to both their staff and current learners, providing opportunities to attend free wellbeing workshops, delivered by their own growing team of wellbeing tutors along with the Inclusion Thurrock Recovery College.
The College will also be serving tea and cakes to raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation, to help create a world with good mental health for all. People who are more socially connected to family, friends, colleagues or their community are happier, physically healthier and live longer, with fewer mental health problems.
Start supporting your own mental health by visting the TACC social area for a natter over a cuppa and a cake, whilst raising money to mobilise efforts in support of better mental health.
