Following the success of its Suffolk Spirituality and Mental Wellbeing conferences in autumn 2013, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust will be holding a further four half-day conferences in Norfolk and Waveney.
These conferences will assist all those attending to help support their community better and will focus on spirituality and mental wellbeing.
An important part of the Trust’s overall strategic direction, is the modernisation of services as mental health provision becomes gradually more person-centred, more recovery-focused, and more concerned with people’s strengths and potential.
Spirituality has no one definition but in general it is something everyone can experience. Spirituality is also seen as broader than religion. Some spiritual beliefs are particular to an individual, whereas the beliefs attached to a religion are shared by large groups of people who follow established teaching.
These half-day sessions will be a fantastic chance to exchange ideas, listen, learn, reflect together and help theTrust provide better services.
Dates and venues confirmed are:• Monday, 10 February – Kirkley Centre, Lowestoft • Thursday, 20 February – Cliftonville Hotel, Cromer • Monday, 17 February – Ecotech Centre, Swaffham • Monday, 24 February – King’s Centre, Norwich Trust Secretary Robert Nesbitt said: “This is very exciting; after the huge success of the sessions in Suffolk last year, we are really pleased to announce some new dates in Norfolk. These sessions form part of the three-year strategic plan for Spirituality and Mental Health and is an opportunity for people to help shape the implementation of the Trust’s plan.” These sessions are free to join but have limited spaces.
