Norfolk and Waveney Mind announce virtual Festival of Kindness this Mental Health Awareness Week
The team at Norfolk and Waveney Mind will be marking this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week in a special and somewhat different way to previous years, by holding a virtual Festival of Kindness. 

Embracing this year’s campaign theme of kindness, they will be turning over their social media platforms from 18-24th May to host the festival, which aims to help connect people through music, art, food, poetry and more, whilst celebrating all things kind and the positive effects this can have on our mental health and wellbeing.
