Health and Wellbeing sessions
Time to Talk Day takes place on 2 February 2023 – it is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Happening every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives. Talking about mental health isn’t always easy, but a conversation has the power to change lives. Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership are running a number of sessions throughout February focused on mental health:
Supporting Mental Health at Work
Thursday 9 Feb 12.30-13.30
Do we fully understand the term mental health? The phrase is now entrenched in our society and having positive mental health absolutely accepted as an essential part of overall health. But how often do we actually examine our own mental health? The WHO recently reported that stress, depression, and anxiety have increased worldwide by 25% since COVID-19. Suggesting that many of us could well be struggling.
This session provides an opportunity to explore the phrase mental health, consider our own mental wellbeing, and understand how stress impacts this position. We cover:
• The term mental health and the mental health spectrum
• How stress impacts mental health
• Common internal and external stressors
• The impact of change
• Practical tools to support stress
Where are memories, emotions and trauma really stored in the body?
Friday 10 Feb 10.00-11.30
We hear that the body remembers; that we store pent up tension and unresolved issues in the body, but where exactly are they stored and what can we do to release these? Unprocessed events and emotions that stay trapped in the body can lead to ill health and disease, poor posture and depression. In this workshop you’ll be introduced to physiology behind events that we haven’t been able to process.

We will be covering strategies, tips and techniques for managing your mental health and emotional wellbeing during menopause with a focus on the most common issues of stress, mood swings, anxiety and depression.
