The links below provide information to some of the local services and organisations in Sheffield and elsewhere.
Sheffield Mental Health Week is pleased to announce our Wellbeing Festival will this year be held on Fargate. From 10am on 26 July you will be treated to a variety of stalls, activities and even stilt walkers all coming together in celebration of wellbeing and to let people know about the range of services the city has to offer those with mental health conditions and their carers.
The focus of the day will be on emphasising the steps we can each take to promote and look after our own mental wellbeing, including physical activity,so we will also be offering a variety of taster sessions throughout the day.
If you have a service or health message to promote and would like to explore getting involed in the festival please contact our co-ordinator at: email@example.com
