Launch of Safe Places Scheme
Launch of Safe Places Scheme

Spalding’s new Safe Places Scheme at Tonic Health was launched last week on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

The launch event included a number of presentations related to the scheme, which is funded by the Managed Care Network for mental health.

Michael Morris from Tonic Health gave a presentation on the weekly meeting group that will take place every Tuesday between 4.30pm and 6pm.

The free weekly meetings – hosted by Vanessa Browning – are open to anyone who struggles with mental ill health.

The peer-led group will provide an opportunity to learn about mental health and hear from specialist speakers, and partake in a variety of different activities each week.

For further information, please call Tonic Health on 01775 725059 and ask to speak to Vanessa. Alternatively, visit the website at www.spaldingsafeplaces.co.uk
