Changing Minds: Mental Health Awareness Week
Join us and make Halton a mentally healthier place to live!
Mental Health Awareness Week this year starts on Monday 8th May and in Halton we have lots of activities taking place for all the family.
Following the huge success of Changing Minds in 2016 , we will be hosting a Mental Health week within the Centre in the Main Town Square and will be showcasing some of the many services and organisations around Halton who can provide support for achieving good mental health. We will also give you practical examples of how you can achieve positive mental health and wellbeing.
Everyone is welcome to come along – at each event, we’ll have lots of activities and information for people of all ages, young and old.
Monday 8 May – Friday 12 May – ShoppingCity Runcorn 9.00 – 6.00
On the opening day at ShoppingCity Runcorn we will welcome the Mayor who will officially open this year’s event. The team from Halton Health Improvement and ShoppingCity Runcorn will be supported by Citizen’s Advice Halton, Venus Charity, Anita Morris and Murray the Owl from Hackback, Mental Health Outreach team and the SEND Partnership.
We’ll have information and activities all day for people of all ages to come along and talk about mental health and wellbeing.
The team and local organisations will be at the Shopping Centre every day from 9.30 to 6.00, within The Main Town Square.

There’s more to the Post Office than mailing at ShoppingCity Runcorn
The Post Office is a place where countless things other than mail can be sorted out. This is useful for a whole host of daily life activities – from finance to travel.
With this in mind, we spoke to the lovely staff at our very own Post Office in the ShoppingCity Runcorn about the other services they provide.
