The event will take place on Thursday 21st May, which falls during the national campaign of Mental Health Awareness Week (18th to 24th May), and is expected to attract over 1,500 visitors.
According to Mental Health charity Mind, 1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year. The team at Ajuda Training are keen to raise awareness of this important issue, and launched the event to address and highlight the nmeed to tackle mental health challenges as much as possible, which inspired them to create this new event.
The show will include a selection of seminars focused on topics such as coping with mental illness, ways to promote positive mental health, and how to support people around you who are suffering with ill mental health. Alongside this is an exhibition with over 60 charities, organisations and companies promoting helpful resources, services and initiatives designed to support positive mental health and wellbeing. Delegates can enter the exhibition free of charge, while seminar tickets cost just £10 each.
Company director Dawn Evans says:
“Following a number of smaller courses and events around the topic of mental health, we could see there was a clear need for a bigger and more extensive event around mental health and wellbeing in Wales and across the rest of the UK. The team at Ajuda always strive to provide our customers with the training and events that really matter to them, so we decided to create an event to accommodate the rising need for mental health and wellbeing training.”
