Unfortunately due to recent developments regarding COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone this event which was due to be held on Tuesday 9th June 2020. We will be monitoring the situation over the next few weeks and months, to announce a date for later in the year.
Main theme of the conference
The main theme for the event is the use of space – whether a venue, a building, open outside space, public realm or a workplace – to enhance the wellbeing of the people that use it. Come away with new learning and a plan of how you can create or change a space to be more conducive to improved emotional wellbeing.

Emotional Needs & Resources
At Suffolk Mind, we use a particular model for looking at mental health called Emotional Needs & Resources. This model begins with the mental health continuum. We all have a brain, so we’re all on the mental health continuum and move up and down it throughout our lives.
Stress is the crossover point from wellbeing into mental ill health. It is nature’s way of telling us that one or more of our physical or emotional needs is not being met.
