Health message focus to flourish and feel good
Flourishing, feeling good and functioning were the themes of the 2010 Mental Health Awareness Week.
Mental Health Awareness Week began on Monday, October 4 and the Mental Health Foundation encouraged everyone to focus on the positive aspects of life and the communities around them.
The week saw a number of exciting and informative events held throughout New Zealand.
Progress to Health was involved in several activities last week including having a stand at the Tokoroa Farmers Market.
They were also represented in Taumarunui with a quiz evening and on Friday held an open forum in Putaruru with family and caregivers.
Mental Health Awareness Week ran from October 4-10.
It is endorsed by the World Federation for Mental Health and is marked in more than 150 countries.
