Lads and Dads Wellbeing Day in Banbridge

 

Families from across the Banbridge area attended a Well-being Day celebrating positive mental health among boys, young men and dads.

Over 200 people attended the event and activities included; drumming taster sessions, climbing wall, archery, a bouncy castle, health checks and over 16 local services providing positive mental health and well being support and signposting to families.

 

Guest Speaker at the event was former Manchester United and Northern Ireland Footballer, Pat McGibbon, he said:

‘The importance of positive mental health for families in today’s fast moving society can’t be understated! With work commitments, school runs, runs to after school activities, it’s sometimes forgotten that self-care and spending time with our children is important. Understanding the 5 steps to well-being (being active, connecting with friends, giving, learning and taking notice) and most importantly being prepared to talk are vital to improved mental health. There are plenty of local organisations willing to listen, let’s all reduce the stigma surrounding poor mental health’.
