With the current climate in which we live, we are increasingly aware of the importance of looking after our wellbeing and building our resilience. Following on from the success of last year’s Year of Wellbeing festival held in May 2019, which celebrates local efforts in improving our wellbeing, the organising team have been busy working up plans for another festival in 2020. ​This year, we are going digital to celebrate “Wellbeing for Life”!

Between 7 - 11 September 2020, hosted on the Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust (CWPT) YouTube channel, volunteers from mental health and physical health services will deliver videos ranging from service information, Pilates and art sessions, to help and advice around mental health and emotional wellbeing and promotion of local support services.
 

Along with the festival, on the 10 September it is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day for organisations and communities around the world to come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
 

On the day, Coventry and Warwickshire will be hosting some focused sessions online and in the community, staff will be in Bedworth, All Saints Square between 1 – 4pm talking about support services between  to raise awareness of help and support available and to promote the suicide prevention site www.dearlife.org.uk. The site, created by local health and social care professionals, provides a range of support and signposting to vital services for residents who are desperately seeking support for themselves or anyone who is worried about a loved one or someone they know.
 

So, tell everyone you know and join us for a week of Wellbeing for Life! #wellbeingforlife
