World Mental Health Day at DGMHA - Oct 22

World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2022

On Monday DGMHA had a busy day showing support for world Mental Health Day.

Our Claremont Care Home residents and staff team enjoyed a walk to the park in Catherine Street. Joined by Stanley the dog and all wearing their green ribbons to show support for the day. Even Stanley was wearing his green ribbon!

DGMHA ran a small colouring competition for the team and service users to participate in. For some people colouring or being creative is a way to relieve stress and improve feelings of depression and anxiety. We thought it was important to support this day by taking part in one of the many different ways to help care for your mental health. Head Office staff participated and enjoyed some tea and cakes.

The winners were:

Service User - Penny, resident at Claremont Care Home

Team - Helen, our Finance Officer from Head Office

Both photographed with their fantastic pieces!

At the end of the day we were also delighted to see that the Mental Health Foundation used our photo of Stanley as part of their thank you for everyone's support.
