This year on Tuesday 19th July we’ll be filling Fargate with stalls, activities, games and even stilt walkers!
Three months ahead of World Mental Health Day we will bring together organisations and charities from across the city in a celebration of wellbeing and the wonderful range of services those organisations offer people who are experiencing mental health problems and their carers.
We’ll also be promoting the steps we can all take to enhance and safeguard our own mental health and wellbeing – just as important as eating your 5-a-day.
One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point and so the services that support people in those times are vitally important, however all too often these services are unsung so it’s time to sing loud!
The festival will see The Moor brimming with stalls offering information on their services, volunteering opportunities and much, much more.
From 11am we’ll also be offering free taster sessions for fun, healthy activities that the whole family can enjoy from Zumba to dancing, as well as a free facepainter for the young, and young at heart. We’ll also be joined by Sheffield City Council’s Little Library which will be offering children’s activities and workshops throughout the day.
