North Tyneside’s Employment & Skills service are supporting World Mental Health Day, 10th October. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’. On World Mental Health Day it will have been more than 18 months since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In all countries, the pandemic has had a major impact on people’s mental health. Some groups, including health and other frontline workers, students, people living alone, and those with pre-existing mental health conditions, have been particularly affected
As a service we are offering a new suite of mental health and wellbeing training designed to support those working in local communities to promote and support wellbeing. Building awareness of positive mental health, challenges, or conditions which may affect wellbeing and strategies to support those impacted.
