A BIG local vision of a mentally healthy North Halifax.

The North Halifax Community Wellbeing Partnership were at the Beechwood Big Picnic this month talking to as many people as possible about mental health, and creating our big drawing of a vision for North Halifax.

We want people’s personal experience to be at the heart of everything we do and we know that to improve health and wellbeing in North Halifax we need to work with local people from the very start.

Right now the vision boards are touring various Council and NHS buildings to make sure that service managers and decision makers take note of what local people think.

And keep your eye out from October, as the boards will be visiting local libraries and community venues in north Halifax to carry on the conversation.

If YOU live or work in North Halifax, join in the #BigNHXConversation by sharing your thoughts on social media with @NHXPartnership
