Mental health & wellbeing awareness 24th to 26th March
Mental health requires no introduction, yet it remains an ‘open secret’ and taboo amongst our community, so much so that it prevents people from seeking the much-needed help, support and care they so desperately need.
The Gurdwara Sahib Leamington & Warwick are holding a three day Mental Health & Wellbeing Akhand Paat and Programme to address and tackle the stigma that surrounds mental health head on. This is centred around the five steps to wellbeing (connecting, physical activity, learning, giving and mindfulness) and the three pillars of Sikhism (honest living, sharing and meditation).
We are honoured to be supported by inspirational and leading Sikh sports and media personalities and national organisations and charities. Join us on 24 to 26 March to help spread compassion, kindness and hope within our community. Let’s stand up for mental health together.
