Upcoming Events

Volunteers' Week - 1 to 7 June 2020 

It's Volunteers' Week - when the nation celebrates the efforts of over 20 million people who give their time and skills to others for free. 

We're not able to host a celebration event this year due to the circumstances, but we wanted to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, across the county and beyond, who support Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

Please stay tuned to our social media channels all week for special posts, stories and messages of thanks:

Recent Events

Mental Health Awareness Week - 18 to 24 May 2020 

We marked Mental Health Awareness Week in a special and somewhat different way this year. As this year's theme is kindness, we thought it would be brilliant to celebrate all that is kind, and the positive effects this can have on our mental health.

What better way than to celebrate with a VIRTUAL FESTIVAL taking over our social media? - particularly as lots of us are missing out on festivals this year!

We promoted the kindness message using a variety of festival-favoured content - think music, art, a family area, wellbeing and SOS 'tents' - all encouraging people to connect, keeping kindness in mind.

By Liking our Facebook Page -
...following our Instagram - @norfolkandwaveneymind
...or following us on Twitter - @NorfolkMind could TUNE IN for artists, bands, wellbeing advice, kindness crafts, children's activities and more....all accessible from your own home! (wellies optional!)
