Action Fortnight

It's all happening this summer. As fast as we get going with Movin' On Up (about secondary mental health services - see my previous post) we are also strongly engaged with Time To Change Wales (our anti-discrimination campaign with Gofal and Mind Cymru), different partners and different issues at each end of the spectrum - and yet of course both crucially important and ultimately linked.

Hafal's particular role in Time To Change Wales over the next three years is to recruit and train users and carers to deliver the anti-discrimination message through formal training sessions and informally with all their contacts in the community. But we also want to join with our partners and others to celebrate the project and spread its message in an Action Fortnight from 21 May to 1 June.

Activities could include hosting an anti-stigma information stand or workshop at a busy community centre, shop or café, or something a bit more adventurous like a myth busting quiz, a storytelling event at a local library, an anti-stigma picnic, or a mental health flashmob - sounds fun!
