Supporting World Mental Health Day 2018
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
