World Mental Health Day - 10 October
Our next action day is World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme is suicide prevention so we’d like to use the day to reflect and talk about our work in mental health and how we can all come together and think about suicide prevention. As soon as we have more detail about the day we’ll let you know via the weekly update and on this page but for now, please save the date in your diary and start to think about how you can get involved.
Deafblind awareness ebook launched
We've been working in partnership with the Local Authority Deafblind Workers Interest Group (LAWDIG) to produce an ebook titled 'Personal accounts of living with sensory loss in 2019'. The ebook was launched on 25 June by Marsha De Cordova MP at a fantastic evening reception at Portcullis House and we're delighted that we can now share this with you. It's a fantastic collection of stories about the experiences of those who are living with deafblindness and we hope the ebook will influence and enlighten decision makers, commissioners and the wider public on what it means to live with sensory loss.
