Local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind, is delighted to announce a 2 year partnership with the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA), the charity behind Banham Zoo in Norfolk and Africa Alive in Suffolk. This announcement coincides with the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, which takes place from the 10th to the 16th of May.
New Orleans style band, East Angles Brass, will be performing whilst walking the streets of Docking, King’s Lynn, on Saturday 11 July to celebrate the end of the Spark, Kindle and Glow project delivered by local mental health charity, Norfolk and Waveney Mind in association with Community Action Norfolk.
As part of its Festival of Kindness to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, on Wednesday, May 20, Norfolk and Waveney Mind is offering a free online mindfulness taster session. But what is it and how could it help us look after our mental wellbeing during the coronavirus pandemic – and beyond?
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.
