Wellbeing and mental health events for people in Milton Keynes this World Mental Health Day

BLMK are running an ongoing series of wellbeing and mental health events for the residents of and people who work in Milton Keynes.

“Don’t delay in seeking help and support.” That’s the message from the NHS in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes on the eve of World Mental Health Day.

The theme for this year's World Mental Health Day is 'Mental Health in an Unequal World'.

Milton Keynes Talking Therapies Service is encouraging adults experiencing low mood, anxiety, stress, insomnia and COVID concerns, to not delay seeking help and support.

They are encouraging residents with these symptoms to take part in any of the one-off webinars run by the three services in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.

The webinar schedule and booking can be found here.

The webinars cover a range of topics including:

  • Understanding and Managing Anger
  • Men’s Mental Health
  • Sleep Hygiene and Compassion

The sessions are free of charge to anybody who lives or works in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.

Team Manager Jake Thorpe said: “We know it’s been a tough couple of years for many people, but we know these webinars have proved useful to people. It is important not to delay prioritising our mental health and if you feel you may benefit from talking therapies, now is the time to get in touch and start exploring the options we have available to help. If you access services sooner, then your recovery time will be quicker.”
