Mental Health Awareness Week 2022

May 9th was this years Mental Health Awareness week and our Spring Social Prescribing team really went the extra mile to provide our community with a fantastic week filled with great social events! We started the week off on a slow note, taking it easy with a nice walk through the Dumfries House Estate. The meditation walking group got to take in the surrounding countryside & all its beauty before enjoying a nice cup of tea and a chat in the nearby café. On Tuesday, we ran a Taster Reiki & Indian Head Massage group in our comfortable Yipworld living room followed up by a brilliant health, wellbeing & nutritional advice session on Wednesday! For Thursday, we offered a very relaxing, Mindful Meditation Class & on Friday we had a very nice breakfast morning with tea, coffee & bacon rolls being served to anyone who came in for a wee blether. For the weekend, we ran a Focused Relaxation group which aimed at showing people how colour can effect & change their mood. We finished off our week with a brilliant Mental health Cycle ride from Yipworld to Dumfries House with blue skies & sun shining above us all the way!
