Thursday March 26th 2009
The Conference Centre at Newport YMCA
Mendalgief Road
NP20 2HF
(Free Buffet Lunch Provided)
This event is primarily aimed at individuals in the area of Gwent who suffer from mental distress

Being mentally healthy is about how we – all of us – lead our lives. It’s about how we think and feel and act, our levels of optimism, resilience and confidence, the quality of relationships we have with those around us, our sense of meaning and purpose and our coping strategies at difficult times.
Mental health improvement is not simply about helping us address illness and helping people with mental health problems. It’s about emphasising wellness, and taking a positive approach to building and maintaining good mental health for everybody.
Come and explore some of the key community initiatives that could help to unlock and enhance positive Mental Well Being.
Sessions include:
 Alternative therapies,
 Arts,
 Confidence building techniques,
 Mental Health First Aid,
 Inspirational presentations from individuals about how they were able to improve their mental well-being
