This Thursday, 10th October is World Mental Health Day. St Martins is running an event at its head office in Highbury for residents and their carers from 12-3pm to mark the occasion. There will be Caribbean food and music from staff and residents. In addition, advocacy, employment and support organisations will be present, including Voiceability, Twinings Enterprise and Islington CRI.
The many talents of St Martins’ residents will be celebrated with a small exhibition of artwork. There will also be a chance to meet Wilton Villas’ resident poet, who has recently released a beautiful book of poetry available on Amazon. Raffle tickets will be on sale to support the Mental Health Foundation. The draw takes place on 11 November and the prizes look excellent.
