Our next CPD Workshop on Friday 6th March will consider why meaning matters, and how we can support our clients to move from despair to hope.

If any of these are you, then you would be welcome to join us in the New year.  For more details and a booking form: https://network.org.uk/training/being-there/

Thank you!

A huge thanks to the staff and shoppers at Asda Filton for supporting Network. We had a stand in the foyer during Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, and raised a much needed £335.15 to support mental health in our community.

From 13-19 May we will be celebrating positive mental health, and thinking about how we think and feel about our bodies. Body issue images can affect us at any age, so take a look at these tips for self-care.

Our Annual Conference 2019 will be taking place on Friday 10th May, on the theme of “Are we all mad?” We are pleased to be welcoming Karl Gregory as our keynote speaker. For more details click here
