Sometimes we say we are fine, when we are not……
As part of our efforts to raise mental health awareness, and to help destigmatise situational and chronic mental health issues, Provincial Grand Lodge of Berkshire, in association with Mind, held a very successful webinar for better mental health.
The informative Wellbeing with Mind webinar was attended by over 120 Berkshire Freemasons plus their families. The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master opened the webinar by highlighting the importance for us all, especially during this lockdown period, to take stock of our own wellbeing as well as enquiring on the wellbeing of our family and friends.
The two presenters from Mind talked in detail about how to recognise the signs of poor mental health and how to look after yourself and ask for help, with practical steps and signposting. Our Lived Experience speaker gave a powerful and insightful account of his personal experience of mental health problems, how he sought help and how he now manages his mental health. The webinar ended with a Q&A session which drew many questions from the attendees, allowing even deeper understanding and awareness coupled with advice and tips offered from the Lived Experience speaker.
This timely event has received significant positive feedback which included one attendee declaring that it has directly prompted him to seek support.
The Berkshire Masonic Charity were delighted to sponsor the event and have made a donation of £500 to Mind in recognition for not only delivering this webinar, but also for the essential work they do to help communities with mental health.
It’s OK not to be OK!
