We were delighted to take part in the recent Sheffield Chinese Community Living Well Event.

The event promoted healthy living and encouraged the Chinese community to learn about services and how best to manage physical and mental wellbeing. We were keen to attend, because we know how important it to is to raise awareness of mental health issues, as this helps combat stigma and encourages open dialogue.

Our Counselling & Therapy service manager, Edyta, talked to lots of people about how counselling can help with depression and anxiety and she also introduced people to the services and support we provide. Our Connect 3 service manager, Rob, addressed the conference, speaking about the importance of 'talking'.

A number of health and wellbeing services took part in the event and everyone who attended agreed it had been a really important - and enjoyable - day.
