Roadshow aims to get talking on Mental Health in Moray

mrrmoray_400x240MORAY COMMUNITIES WILL be visited next month by a roadshow that aims to start open conversations on mental health issues.

The ‘Recovery Roadshow’ events will be held in all Moray’s main towns and will be of interest to anyone who has been or is affected by mental health problems.

It will include people who have personal experience of the issues involved as well as those who care for others who have poor mental health. The informal and relaxed atmosphere of the roadshow will allow visitors to find out more about what actually helps people to recover from their mental health issues.

Steven McCluskey, the strategic manager for health improvement and Moray ‘choose-life’ coordinator, explained: “The roadshow in Moray will take place from November 14 to November 20 and will call in at Elgin, Buckie, Lossiemouth, Keith, Forres, Burghead, Dufftown, Aberlour, Cullen, Fochabers and Tomintoul.

“People will be able to hear from others about their recovery journeys and what recovery means to them, learn about how writing and sharing stories can help people in their recovery and get information about the projects and resources that are available to maintain good mental health and wellbeing.”
