About this event
This year Healthwatch marked world mental health day with a well-attended event at the Meritage Centre which was co-facilitated by the Hub Connections, Barnet Wellbeing Service and other community partners.
The theme this year was Suicide Prevention and we heard from a range of professionals, community sector staff and the public. Suicide has a devastating impact on families and communities and is still a subject not talked about much in society.
We also heard from the Deputy Mayor of Barnet, Barnet Crisis Team, the Samaritans and Barnet Public Health. The event included activities such music, dance and relaxation exercises.
