World Mental Health Awareness Day

This Wednesday, 10th October, is World Mental Health Awareness Day, aiming to get us all `talking openly about mental illnesses, and the treatments and preventions that are open to us'.

The Day will be incredibly embarrassing for Salford City Council, currently in the midst of a campaign to stop its mental health cuts – which has so far seen Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband and the Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, get involved (see here). Campaigners against the cuts are planning something special for the day, which we won't divulge here, to raise awareness of Salford Council's actions.

Elsewhere in Salford, the positive work being done with mental health disorders is being showcased at the ace Start in Salford project, which is holding an Open Day to highlight its creative workshops and some of the stunning art that has been produced.

It's open to everyone to go and have a look around, and begins at 10:30am with guided tours throughout the day. Visitors will see print making, knitting, forest crafts, enamelling and design workshops, music and photography exhibitions, and a staff v volunteers hockey match, with a physical activity workshop by Salford City Reds. There's also activities happening in Start's unique gardens.
