This year for World Mental Health Day, two of our staff members from our Knowsley Moving Forward Together service attended a community event in Huyton Village, Merseyside. This was a great opportunity for the team to get out in the community and to work with other local services to support with awareness of the day.

Alongside Knowlsey Moving Forward Together at the event there were services that supported with health and wellbeing, social issues, debt, housing and support. This proved very beneficial with the event offering the chance to network and it also provided support opportunities for our clients and provide exit plans for service users in the community inclusion strand. For IPS it has been valuable to engage with employers and see the opportunities they currently have available.

Team Manager Shanice said “I really enjoyed attending this event, as a service it's really important to be visible to showcase what is on offer for our service and for us to explore what is happening in the local area. I hope to be able to spend more time exploring the Knowsley area."
