Mental Health Awareness Fair

Recovery Devon will be hosting a Mental Health Awareness Fair in collaboration with Adoddle at Exeter Library on

Tuesday 10th May 2022 between 10am and 2pm.

The fair will take place during Mental Health Awareness Week (9th – 15th May). This year’s theme is loneliness and how it effects individuals and communities.

We have gathered local community groups, charities and organisations that have a focus on all areas of mental wellbeing to be in Exeter Library’s foyer. They will be welcoming questions and offering information about services available to people in Exeter and Devon.

We hope to be able to connect people to both the support that is within their community and also to others that are feeling the effects of loneliness.

We will also have Jaki King from Adoddle with us to promote the Adoddle Community Map. She will be there to help organisations set themselves up on the map, and to show others how to use it.

We have author, Emma Goude, joining us to promote her book ‘My Beautiful Psychosis’ as well as Sarah McDonald with her Positivity Pebbles.

This is a free event, no need to book.

The organisations that will be present at this event are:

Adoddle – A community mapping organisation, connecting you with local charities, community groups, organization’s and resources.
