Events — Cwmbran Centre Supporting Mental Health Awareness Week

13/05/2019 until 19/05/2019

Mental Health Awareness week is happening 13th-19th May 2019 this year, with a focus on body image and the impact that this can have on peoples’ mental health. At Cwmbran Centre we are supporting this event and putting on a range of activities to highlight that it is #OK2BUCwmbran.

Although the event doesn’t officially start until 13th May, the Cwmbran Centre team are starting their activities a day early with a sponsored walk up the Sugar Loaf Mountain in aid of the Mental Health Foundation. If you would like to donate then please do here.

The activities don’t stop there – there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved in, take a look:
