Getting Active about Emotional Health & Wellbeing Event
Saturday 21st August 2021 @Dixon Park; Gates open 11.30am
This is a TAKE 5 STEPS TO WELLBEING EVENT:
Ballyclare Comrades will be holding a Wellbeing event (Saturday 21st August) to promote the Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing message and give parents and young people the opportunity to understand how this can work for them. They will have a number of voluntary/statutory agencies within the Z-card directory of services that will be available to discuss their support at this event and highlight how support can be accessed for these services. They hope to have a number of advice services to discuss access to grants for school uniforms and free school meals etc.
This event will be open to the whole community and aims to encourage Families/Carers/young people from the communities within the borough of Antrim/Newtownabbey to understand the importance/impact of mental health on emotional health and wellbeing; to access support and how using the Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing can assist them with this.
They have support from Bob&Berts franchise who will supply tea/coffee/water to sell; the proceeds of which will go to the local foodbank. Similarly, ASDA are going to supply foodstuffs for a bbq, again the proceeds going to the local foodbank.
