HUNDREDS of people flocked to Huddersfield University for an event that showed them how to keep their minds healthy.
The Festival of Wellbeing was held as part of World Mental Health Day.
It was one of many events that took place across the South West Yorkshire Mental Health Trust’s area – and also throughout the world – to promote wellbeing and tackle the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
The festival included arts and crafts taster sessions, complementary therapies and a wide variety of stalls and refreshments.
There was also plenty of entertainment, including a performance from the Hoot guitar orchestra, an art exhibition, music from DJ Alix Brains and a street theatre performance by students from the university.
Workshops, including laughter therapy and creative writing, were held and participants also enjoyed hand and head massages, an introduction to yoga and various competitions.
There were stalls and displays helping people understand the importance of looking after their own mental wellbeing.
Information for carers and families was also available.
Visitor David Henry said: “The day has helped build up people’s self-confidence and has been a really nice event. I wish I could do this every day!”
