On 6th March 2019 we held a Recovery Event at Bridge with the emphasis on mental health, this was in preparation for Mental Health Awareness Week 13th - 19th May 2019.
We were very lucky to have received an offer from Captain Krankypants (Trace Dann) to deliver a talk about Living and Surviving PTSD and Depression.
This was a personal, entertaining, emotional talk, which our staff, members and volunteers found the experience to be all of the above, but also, funny, thought provoking and for some very reassuring and comforting, and more importantly aware of mental health issues.
Two members of Bridge staff delivered a short presentation on the impact of substance misuse and how it affects the brains capacity to function, in relation to thoughts, feelings, reactions, emotions and responses. The presentation also highlighted the in-house activities currently, regularly on offer at Bridge, which promotes wellbeing, and includes Auricular Acupuncture, guided meditation and reflexology.
Approximately 70 people attended, and the feed-back has been very positive.
