Barnsley Mental Health Awareness Week

13 May - 19 May 2019

Mental health problems affect one in four people in any given year and can affect anyone at any time. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. 

Experiencing mental health problems can be upsetting, confusing, frightening and people may struggle to know where to turn to for help. This is why we have decided, on Mental Health Awareness Week, to team up with local support groups and organisations in the Barnsley area to create awareness of where help is available to those in need. 

We will be welcoming a number of charities and support groups into the centre across our Mental Health Awareness week, 13th – 19th May 2019, who will be on hand to provide support, guidance and a friendly face to talk to.

Here at Alhambra Centre we are so committed to Barnsley's mental health that our Senior Management Team have recently completed their Mental Health First Aid Trained Certification! 

Why not try some self help ...

If you’re in need of a pick me up we have plenty of stores across our centre that can supply you with products that will help you to look and feel great and give your mental wellbeing a boost!

A new scent is a great way for you to feel great! Having a new scent that people notice and compliment you on will boost your confidence and instantly lift your mood, head on over to The Perfume Shop or Savers to grab a bargain! 

Escape the everyday and treat yourself to a getaway! Visit Thomas Cook and check out their great holiday deals they have on offer – it will give you something to look forward to!

Spending time with loved ones is a great way to lift your mood and discuss any issues you might be facing. Why not arrange to meet them for a bite to eat in Massarella Coffee Shop or Urban Deli?
