Mental Health and Wellbeing

April 14 @ 5:00 pm - April 16 @ 5:00 pm

 

National Association of Councillors Learning Weekend

@The Royal Hotel, Scarborough 14th – 16th April 2023

Mental Health & Wellbeing

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years there has been an increasing awareness of mental health problems in our society. This affects people in all walks of life and can have a major effect in our communities.

Our mental health influences our physical health, as well as our capability to lead a healthy lifestyle and to manage and recover from physical health conditions.

People with physical health problems, especially long-term conditions, are at increased risk of poor mental health – particularly depression and anxiety. Around 30% of people with any long-term physical health condition also have a mental health problem. Poor mental health, in turn, exacerbates some long-term conditions, such as chronic pain.

This conference will look at ways local authorities can help their own staff, councillors, individuals and groups to combat the effects of poor mental health.

This event will provide opportunities to hear quality speakers, participate in Q&A sessions and contribute to conference workshops. The conference will benefit elected members from every tier of local government.

 

Yours Faithfully

 

Councillor Brian Nelson

National Secretary
