Women who use mental health services and their carers are invited to a day of activities to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Mirfield Day Centre, which is run by the South West Yorkshire Mental Health NHS Trust, will host the event on 10th March 2004.
There will be a wide range of activities taking place throughout the day, ranging from alternative therapies such as aromatherapy, reflexology and beauty therapy to more energetic pursuits such as Egyptian dancing, self defence tutoring, a drumming group and exercise demonstrations. Attendees will also be able to participate in a time management workshop and arts and crafts including willow sculpture, rag rolling and quilting.
Information about women’s health issues will be available and a representative from a local health food shop will be on hand to give information and advice on products.
The theme of this years event is ‘I don’t know how she does it,’ which reflects the many roles that women have to adopt in day-to-day life. Activities that will take place throughout the day will encourage the women to take time out for themselves, highlighting the importance of focusing on mental well being.
The International Women’s Day event at Mirfield Day Centre is open to all women who have used mental health services and the people who care for them. For more information contact Mirfield Day Centre on 01924 326540
