Thank You for Your Support During
Mental Health & Carers Week

Thank you to everyone who supported us and participated in our training, events and workshops held throughout Mental Health and Carers Week 2020, be it in person or from afar.

From art therapy and recovery, through to youth mental health and wellbeing, and even an introduction to community mental health work, the MIFWA team had an incredibly busy week and we are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with you.

Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Responses

Check out this video as part of the Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Responses series from The MHS Learning Network, where our CEO Monique Williamson provides an overview of how MIFWA served their community through both the COVID-19 pandemic and the other challenges 2020 presented.

2020 reminded us about the resilience of the people they support. Many people with lived experience live with distress regularly, and their ability to keep the rest of us calm and to teach people how to get through each day at a time and to be there for one another is something the team at MIFWA will always be grateful for.
