Spotlight On…..World Mental Health Day 10th October 2021

Spotlight On… World Mental Health Day 2021 – Walk, Talk and Wear Green 

This year, Active Cheshire is working in collaboration with Mind North West Hub Mental Health, Sport & Physical Activity Network to invite all Active Waterways participants and team to take part in walks for mental health that are taking place on Friday 8th October, at the same time across the North West.

Here at Social Action Partnership we want to support and raise the profile of physical activity and its links with better mental health as we know how much it affects people, from those severely affected by mental illness, to those whose mental health has worsened during the coronavirus crisis.
Forward Together, is the theme for 2021 and we want you to walk forward with us.
Walking and talking has many benefits for our physical and mental wellbeing. By organising a walking get together, Active Cheshire want to give all a non-judgemental space to talk about mental health if they want to.
The plan is to meet at 12:00 and start walking at 12:15 for 30/45 minutes. Longer if people are available/able to do so.

Macclesfield, West Park
Crewe, Queen’s Park
Northwich, Anderton Boat lift CW9 6FW meet in the carpark
The walks are free to join but  Active Cheshire ask all participants to please register so that they can ensure safety during the walk.
