The theme of our event Is learn and grow with your super hero. We are exploring everyday superheros like carers, family and other supports for those struggling with mental health issues or just everyday stressors of life. We will have capes available for people to decorate and will be encouraging people to dress up for the market day with lots of information stalls and interactive activities with a mental health theme. A photo booth will be available and we will be encouraging people to use social media to promote and publicise the event. We also do a suicide memorial walk with guest speakers (usually people with a lived experience and or politicians – Pru Goward the minster for Mental Health is the local member). This year we have Mind Blank attending and they will be doing an interactive community theatre show in the park which will focus on when and where to get help. Discussions are also taking place about some simple mental health screening tools especially for young people.
