A strong and visible Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector

Herefordshire & Worcestershire Wellbeing and Recovery College host World Café event as part of Time to Talk Day

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Wellbeing and Recovery College will be hosting a World Café event on 1st February 2024, 10am-12.30pm at the Arena, University of Worcester. The event will create a safe and supportive, informal café setting for people to explore stigma – talk about ways to recognise it, re-educate ourselves about it and decide how to reduce stigma in our everyday lives.

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Wellbeing and Recovery College, launched in 2021, brings together NHS, public sector and voluntary organisations to offer a wide range of accessible learning opportunities with a focus on mental health and wellbeing.

Alongside the World Café will be a marketplace of local resources and support organisations where people can gather more information, advice or help with mental health and wellbeing for themselves or others.

Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness on the 1st Thursday in February. This year it is being delivered in partnership with Co-op for the third year running. It is a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives. Time to Talk Day is the perfect opportunity to start a conversation about mental health.
