Sunday 25 November 2018. 11:00am to 3:30pm
Healing Minds is a ladies only event focusing on Mental Health and Wellbeing.
This event is open to women who may have suffered or are suffering from depression/other mental health issues or for those who wish to understand mental health better perhaps in order to help a loved one, and also for those who are just needing upliftment, to hear from and engage with trained counsellors, life coaches and well being experts.
The talks delivered will focus on understanding depression and anxiety, some of the possible causes, natural therapies, and will also explore treatment options. We will discuss postnatal depression, some of the cultural barriers and associated stigmas that exist within the community.
There will be a panel Q&A session and a chance to network at the end. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak to our guest speakers on a one-to-one basis after the Q&A session if they wish to do so.
We hope all those attending will leave the event feeling uplifted and anyone suffering with mental health issues will realise that they are not alone and there is lots of help available.
This event requires registration and has limited spaces. Please click here to reserve your place. Book now to avoid disappointment.
