Wychavon Wellbeing Week took place from 9 to 15 October 2017. The idea for it came from the Wychavon Partners Together health event that we held in November 2016.
The aims of the week were to:
- Raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma associated with them.
- Promote positive and practical ways to improve wellbeing.
- Promote the help and support that’s available for people experiencing mental health problems.
During Wychavon Wellbeing Week lots of different organisations put on activities and events across Wychavon. These were based around one or more of the five ways to wellbeing – connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.
From health walks and sports taster sessions to talks and opportunities to give, there was lots going on that people could get involved in. People were encouraged to take the Wychavon Wellbeing Challenge and share through photos, postcards and on social media what they had done and how it made them feel.
