The Cheriton Community Network – operated by United Response, is holding a month-long free exhibition this February 2024 to help Folkestone residents find “Peace” in the “Frantic World” we live in.
With free events, talks, podcasts, workshops and more, the mental health and wellbeing exhibition will be open to the public starting February 2nd 2024.
“It’s a mad, complicated world we live in”, says exhibition organiser Oliver Neely; “and Demand on mental health services across the UK is showing no sign of abating. Government reports show increased incidences of anxiety, loneliness and stress in the country; We wanted to provide some peace from the madness”, He explained.
There’s lots to get involved in throughout the month – Talks on various topics, Sound bathing, a confidential wind phone, films, reflexology, and mindful walking, there will also be local poets, artists and others giving their interpretations on finding peace in the busy world we live in.
Those interested in attending talks and the free sessions on offer are advised to pre-book a space, however, it will be possible to turn up on the day for some activities.
A full schedule is available at the Cheriton Community Network and online on the event’s Facebook page.
