Event description

Description

To mark World Mental Health Day this exclusive event will raise awareness of the importance of talking about mental health, as 1 in 4 people will be affected by mental health issues at some point in their life.

This event will have a focus on talking about the cause, impact and recovery from psychological trauma and PTSD. Psychological trauma and PTSD can affect anyone who has witnessed or experienced something traumatic, with 50% of the UK population experiencing at least one trauma in their lives. Trauma can occur from: seeing trauma at work as a first responder; being a victim of physcial, emotional and/or sexual violence; witnessing a traumatic accident such as a car accident; experiencing a traumatic childbirth, to name a few examples.

We will have speakers and a variety of activities to explore how we can start conversations around mental health and promote positive well being. We aim to create a safe and supportive environment in which to explore this. There will be a welcome glass of prosecco/non-alcoholic fizz, and cake for everyone attending.

All money raised from the tickets will be donated to Leeds and Bradford-based charity Solace: Surviving Exile & Persecution, who support asylum seekers, refugees, and survivors of torture who have been affected by trauma and PTSD.

The event will take place at award-winning Pastille Beauty Bar which has supported local charities, independent businesses, and independent business women, since its launch in 2013. Pastille is a Mindful Employer, and is pleased to provide a space for this exciting event.
