Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust, are holding a mini conference on Tuesday 19th March, looking at the relationship between physical activity and mental health.
The event will bring together a mix of professionals from both the child and adult health sector, alongside individuals who will share their personal stories of how keeping active has impacted their lives.
A light lunch will be provided between 12-1pm, during which there will be the opportunity to network and chat with stall holders and local organisations.
The event will host a number of guest speakers who will
- Discuss the data and trends around physical activity and mental health, alongside future strategic plans
- Share their own stories of how keeping active has had impacted their lives
- Demonstrate how families and young people can be encouraged to take part in more physical activity and the impact it can have
- Look at the barriers people face in accessing these activities and how we can overcome them
There will be a number of workshops following on from the speakers, with further opportunity to network at the end of the event.
Please note, we welcome anyone who would like to share their own personal journey of how getting physically active has impacted them. If you would like share your story either in person, by video or in writing then please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
