Healthwatch Northumberland AGM 2021
Thursday 4 November, 2021, 10.00am -12.00pm
If you live or work in Northumberland, we’d love you to join us at our AGM and Review of the Year 2021.
This free, online event is a chance to find out more about our work as health and social care champion for Northumberland.
We’ll be reviewing our work over the last 18 months and letting you know our priorities for the coming year.
The event will be opened by Cllr Wendy Pattison, Portfolio Holder for Adults’ Wellbeing.
This is also a chance to hear from the new Northumberland Recovery College.
Offering free courses, workshops and activities across the county and online, the Northumberland Recovery College is here to promote and improve the wellbeing of all residents of Northumberland.
The team will be telling us about the growth and future plans of the college along with showcasing some short tasters of what the college can offer to support mental health and wellbeing.
Taster session 1: A Guided visualisation- using imagery to support your wellbeing
Guided imagery involves listening to someone’s voice, relaxing the breathing and directing the ability to imagine. Research has shown that guided imagery can help to manage stress, reduce fear and anxiety, as well as reduce the occurrence of headaches.
Taster Session 2: Building Resilience:
Resilience: our ability to bounce back when we get knocked down, just like a Weeble. This taster session will introduce the concept of emotional resilience, answer some questions from our dear friend Bob and look at a skill we can all use in everyday life to improve our wellbeing.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the event but if you’d like to raise a question now, to be asked at the AGM please email email@example.com.
