Do you know what Hate Crime is, and how it can affect adults with disabilities? Hate Crime Awareness Week is on the 16th- 22nd October and here at Centre 404 we are running workshops for both family carers, and adults with learning disabilities to help everyone to understand what hate crime is, and how to report it.

On Wednesday 18th October there will be a workshop for family carers from 10-12pm; and workshops for adults with learning disabilities from 1-3pm, and 7-9.30pm. There will be representatives from local Safer Neighbourhoods Police; Safer Transport Police and Transport for London Travel Mentors scheme, as well as a film made by volunteers from Elfrida Society about discrimination at all of the events.

There will also be some interactive activities to help everyone to think about how to stay safe and how to report hate crime.

Support World Mental Health Awareness Day10/10/2017

Thumb mental health day

October 10th 2017 is World Mental Health Day and to support this Centre 404  are hosting a schedule of wellness activities for staff throughput the week. There is an opportunity to learn about EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) from EFT Practitioner, Nora Velzeboer, relax with a massage, get mindful with a yoga class and generally take some time off from a busy schedule and have some me time.

Centre 404 are proud to be raising awareness for mental health. Today marks the 25th annual Mental Health Day since it began in 1992. Current statistics show that 1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem every year (McManus, S., Meltzer, H., Brugha, T. S., Bebbington, P. E., & Jenkins, R. (2009) and research suggests that between 41% and 27% of adults with a learning disability have a mental health problem and about 40% of children with a learning disability suffer from mental health problems (Mencap 2016).

Very often we can be uncertain on how to talk about our problems and keep them locked in but over time this can lead to more problems and stress. World Mental Health Day is a chance to connect with others and know that you are not alone. Take time to do things that can bring you joy and join the campaign today #worldmentalhealthday
