Get out your Pom-Poms for World Mental Health Day

Two Truro organisations which promote good mental health - and who have both recently featured on CHBN - are joining forces to host a special evening to mark World Mental Health Day this October.

Stacie Clark of New Day Knitwear and Hayley Stanton of Quiet Connections will be opening the doors to their office so that people who have been affected by, or know someone who has been affected by, mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem can connect and create with one another in a calm, relaxed environment.

The 'create' element of the night comes from the ethos of New Day Knitwear which seeks to help people suffering from anxiety and depression by encouraging them on a journey to acceptance and self-love through designing and crocheting whilst the 'connect' element taps into the aim of Quiet Connections to help people who feel shy and socially anxious to grow in confidence together so they might live a happier life.

Stacie hopes that attendees will help create a series of pom-poms which will form part an 'exciting project in Truro' in 2018.

Coffee, Cake, Create on World Mental Health Day takes place on Tuesday 10th October 2017 at the Old Bakery Studios, Malpas Road. Everyone is welcome and there is coffee and cakes on offer too. To reserve your place at this free event, visit:
