Cool to be Kind
Sunday May 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Mental Health Awareness Week begins on 18 May. This year, the theme is Kindness, a value that is at the heart of what we do as a community. Acts of kindness strengthen relationships and unlock our shared humanity.
Tracy Douthwaite, our main speaker, trains businesses to use a sustainable and effective approach to the mental health needs of their employees, increasing understanding and reducing stigma. Her aim is to embed health and wellbeing into the culture of organisations, ensuring happy, healthy workplaces. She will show us how connecting with others and building communities can support our wellbeing through COVID-19 and beyond. And she will talk about the other kind of kindness, self-kindness, which is often overlooked because we sometimes find it harder to do. Prioritising self-care can have a positive impact even in the most challenging of times.
As always, we will come together to enjoy sing-along pop and rock tunes, an energetic host, and a member of the community telling us how they’re “trying their best”.
Please stay after for tea and biscuits (provided by you!), and lively conversation with other members of the community via Breakout Rooms. Everyone is welcome.
Our assemblies are free to attend, but we kindly request that you support us so we can continue to keep it open to those who cannot afford to contribute. https://sundayassembly.charitycheckout.co.uk
