The workshops are:

10:00-11:00De-stigmatising Mental Health in the Family (Room 505)
As part of International Women's Day(#PressforProgress), this session will help both men and women become a little more mindful, acknowledging their power, challenging stigma and their own limitations within social groups, and advocating for a fairer, more just and inclusive approach to mental health care.

11:30-12:30 - Mental Health and Ethnicity (Room 505)
Lets continue to #PressforProgress . In this session we will explore in particular the ways in which we are defined by and define our own and other's ethnicity, how our awareness of ethnicity affects our mental health, and how issues of mindfulness, gender, class and ethnicity can intersect and affect our own wellbeing and that of society as a whole.

11:45-12:45 Alexander Technique for Women (Room 504)
This session will help you to become aware of the way you sit and stand. If we transform the way we hold ourselves we can project and feel fearless, we can go about our daily lives with a more confident attitude. Adopting new postural patterns will have a positive impact in our mental habits and help us to integrate more comfortably in our society. Together let’s #PressforProgress in honour of International Women’s Day.

14:00-15:00 - Women and Mental Health: Perinatal Mental Health Awareness (Room 212)
Having a baby is a major life event. Biological, social and emotional changes can cause a variety of mental health needs not often spoken about. There is still a veil of stigma surrounding being anything but joyful during pregnancy and early motherhood that prevents women from seeking help. Learn about the disorders pertaining particularly to this time of life and why perinatal mental health is key as we #PressforProgress with women's mental health outcomes.

15:15-16:15 - Women, Health and Mental Wellbeing (Room104)
Take a pause and #PressforProgess. Come and connect with others in this Women, Health and Mental Wellbeing class, and celebrate International Women’s Day through, shared experiences, movement and mindfulness meditations.

15:30-16:30 - Women and Mental Health: Suicide Awareness & Prevention (Room 114)
Fewer women complete suicide than men but many more make attempts. Suicide one of the UK's biggest public health problems. We will explore its prevalence among women and debunk popular myths as we #PressforProgress with women's mental health outcomes on International Women's day.

Please could you let us know if you have any specific support needs at least two weeks in advance of the event, we appreciate your help in planning.
