1 in 4 people suffer with their mental health
Venturi want mental health to be an everyday priority.
Venturi want to support people to understand mental health.
Venturi want everyone to be treated fairly and with respect.
With the support of Blair House Care Home, Venturi Healthcare recently held a Mental Health Awareness Day. The local community were invited along and provided with the opportunity to meet a number of our residents from both Blair House and Burgess Manor.
Our hope when organising this event was to ensure those living within our homes felt like they were part of their own community. To engage and educate people who live close to our homes, ensure they understood some of the mental health needs of our residents.
The day was an absolute success, we had guest speakers including one of our residents from Blair House, Nikki. She discussed mental health from her own perspective, outlining what day to day life was like for her and how a care home such as Blair House supported her. It was truly moving to hear how she had progressed over the recent years, making new friends in and around Southport.
