From Sunday 1 October to Tuesday 10 October, the municipality of Sint-Lievens-Houtem will put the importance of good mental health in the spotlight. The goal is to discuss “feeling good about yourself” and “psychological vulnerability.” For example, they want to commit to ten days in different ways, and pay extra attention to the mental health of their citizens for ten days.
Have you also noticed that we usually only talk about mental health when things are not going well? This is why it is important and necessary to work on mental health before problems arise. This is done during these ten days. By focusing on positive mental health, we simultaneously create greater understanding of psychologically vulnerable people. Under the slogan “Resilient Together”, the municipality invites everyone to organize action during these ten days that puts mental health and resilience in the spotlight. The municipal services are already setting a good example with some appropriate activities, such as the afternoon of talent for children on October 4 from 1:00 pm at Bib De Fabriek. Be sure to follow the municipality’s social media during the 10-day event for more inspiration.
