Confused Poster Poppy Final1

Octavia is supporting World Mental Health Day 2018.

Mental health problems can affect anyone and we all need to take care of our mental well-being. World Mental Health Day is a really positive way to raise awareness of mental health issues, encouraging people around the world to take better care of themselves whether they have a mental health condition or not.

At Octavia we are helping to combat loneliness and social isolation, issues which are known to adversely impact mental well-being. We are pro-actively involved in the communities where we work, providing services for older and younger people, including:

  • Coffee mornings
  • Befriending services
  • Digital media youth clubs
  • Day activities and care
  • Outreach services
