We pledge to promote creativity, to build relationships, and to battle stigma. We hope that the young people and adults who join us, as audience members or participants in workshops, will be enriched, inspired and invigorated.
I pledge to actively promote this fantastic initiative with a key focus on raising awareness and reducing stigma
Specifically, I pledge to lead, with the Borough’s excellent public health team, a commitment that there can be no public health without mental health across the council and ensure we have a Year of Mental Health that becomes a springboard for future action and endeavours.
“The world needs more Change Makers like the team at Brighter Berkshire!”
We will continue to be an active core member of Brighter Berkshire and provide support for Brighter Berkshire activity
As a champion, we will continue to support the aims of Brighter Berkshire, at any meetings or events we attend where Mental Health issues are discussed or raised. Through the Healthwatch West Berkshire website, social media and all our communications we will publicise Brighter Berkshire, its events and news where possible.
Mental health needs to be spoken about and we hope that students feel more comfortable in talking about mental health with their friends and staff.
Better to talk than feel alone. The world will be open enough to help others out and get others talking. Let’s get rid of the stigma that surrounds Mental Health and get it to be accepted as an illness like Physical Health
