There will be a tombola with great prizes and a delicious cake sale, all monies raised will be donated to Macmillan research.  We will also be welcoming our local fire service. The fire engine will be on display and open to the public, along with children’s activities including bouncy castles, pottery, art and face painting .There will be a chance to meet Trust staff and learn about ways to keep both mind and body healthy.

There will be a fabulous world food buffet available. Food can be purchased on the day whilst listening to great music from local musicians.

Visitors can find out about the Trust’s new integrated community mental health services via our informative displays and explore how we work in partnership with service users, carers, GPs and other organisations to support service users in meeting their recovery goals.

Sue Davis, Trust Chair said, “We are delighted that the Lord Mayor of Birmingham will be visiting to open the event along with long standing members of staff and our service users. We will be sharing our plans for integrated community mental health services along with plans to develop a mobile outreach bus that will bring our Recovery College and medication services to service users who find it difficult to access our sites.”
