Staff and the people we support at Highlea Care, North East, took part in World Mental Health Day by writing up pledges that they will look to keep with regards to talking about and supporting people with mental ill health.
Danielle Blenkinsop, Team Leader, organised the campaign and was delighted with the responses and how people came forward to talk about mental health;
“It was great to interact with others and share stories with regards to mental health. Some of the pledges were amazing and got us talking about fighting the stigma surrounding mental ill health. Well done to everyone involved!”
The day proved to be a major success with staff and the people we support taking part in writing up their mental health pledges and taking photos with them.
