With World Suicide Prevention Day coming up, Cognitia will be hosting a free mental health awareness workshop where we will have individuals talking about their own personal experiences dealing with mental ill health from construction/engineering, rail and HM Forces veteran backgrounds.
In addition, we will have charities and organisations available to talk to on the day who can assist with affordable childcare, financial troubles, and many more
We will also be having a row of tables/ stands for sign posting and assistance stands, which will be available all day for everyone to view and take home should they wish
The date will be the 9th of September (the day before world suicide prevention day) With two sessions, 9-12 and 1-4. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided free of charge throughout the day
Our aim for this workshop is to help battle against the stigma that still surrounds mental health even if it starts with one person at a time
