Happy OK Sad

I Need HelpWe all deserve to enjoy life and feel good about ourselves. Sometimes however life can be tough.

Whether you’re feeling great and want to stay that way, you’re a bit fed up; or you’re struggling to manage your feelings, this site has links to information and tips ranging from how to boost your mood, to where to get help if you’re unable to cope.

The site has been developed for people living in Warrington, so some of the services are for local people only. The words Localservice2 indicate which services are aimed at Warrington residents. Many of the links are for national sites however, so the information will be relevant wherever in England you live.

So that it's easier for you to find what you're looking for, we've divided the site into different sections.

World Mental Health Day - 10 October 2017

Every year World Mental Health Day falls on 10 October. The theme of the campaign day changes, but the overarching aims of the day remain the same. The focus is to:

The theme for this year's World Mental Health Day is “mental health in the workplace”. You can find out more about the campaign from the website of the World Federation for Mental Health.

Free resources
For World Mental Health Day Warrington’s Public Health Team is offering toolkits of resources to local groups and organisations, to use within Warrington. The aim of the toolkits is to provide workplaces, groups and event organisers with a range of materials so they can engage people in discussions about mental health and challenge stigma in relation to mental health problems.

To order a toolkit please complete and return the order form. You can download a Word version of the order form here

The toolkits will be allocated on a first come first serviced basis, to eligible orders. The toolkits are most likely to be allocated to applicants who have clearly thought through plans for using the materials; and who will use the toolkit to actively engage people in discussion.

There are a limited number of toolkits, so if the demand is high we unfortunately may not be able to allocate a toolkit to everyone who orders one. Also it’s unlikely that we’ll allocate more than one toolkit per team. All eligible orders will be posted a toolkit, while stocks last

If you have any questions about the process for ordering a World Mental Health Day toolkit then please contact Resource Centre staff on 01925 443193 or resources@warrington.gov.uk.
