Postcards from Wakefield
To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-16th May), the Positive Mental Health Network in Wakefield is inviting everyone to take part in their ‘Postcards from Wakefield’ project to get more people talking about mental health.
Supported by Spectrum People, Wakefield Council and others, this project encourages people to use postcards to write positive messages, poems, or drawings and share it with others – whether it be a family member, friend, colleague, neighbour, or stranger – with the aim of spreading positivity, building links between more people, and opening up conversations about mental health.
As the theme for the week is nature, the project is also encouraging residents to consider how they could tie this into participating in the project -with suggestions of craft pieces, knitted hearts, or messages on pebbles being left where appropriate in communities, as a reminder that someone cares.
