On Monday 25th April we all got together to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of Future Directions CIC's independence. People we support and their staff came from all areas to help us celebrate. An 'Our Meeting' was tied in, with the theme of 'Socialising and Friendship'. Throughout the celebration we asked people for their ideas and suggestions to help them form social clubs and friendships.
This years Mental Health Awareness Week (16th-22nd May), is focusing on Relationships. More than a healthy diet or exercise, strong social networks improve our mental wellbeing. This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week will be about recognising this. During Mental Health Awareness Week Future Directions will be publishing the results of the socialising and friendship ideas sheets. We will also support people to connect with others who have similar interests and ideas from today’s workshop.
