JCI Malta, the international organisation dedicated to nurturing enterprising young leaders, announces the “Mental Health Awareness Expo” scheduled to take place on Saturday, 7 October 2023, at The Notch Conference Centre within the Urban Valley Resort & Spa in San Gwann.
During a week-long event from 2 to 6 October, JCI Malta will host several initiatives related to mental wellness ranging from a yoga course by Claire Yoga Malta to insightful talks. The main event, the Mental Health Awareness Expo, on 7 October will feature an art exhibition showcasing the works of local artist Claire Farrugia. Alongside this artistic display, attendees can participate in various talks addressing mental health, explore a comprehensive expo highlighting the available support systems for mental health in Malta, as well as take the opportunity to unwind at the Chat Bar provided by Willingness.
A remarkable finding suggests that individuals in Malta are less likely to report suffering from depression in comparison to the European average. JCI Malta aims to utilise this expo as a platform to not only raise awareness about mental health but also to make discussions surrounding mental well-being more approachable and foster understanding.
Join us on this significant day to contribute to the cause, challenge misconceptions, and work towards a more empathetic and informed society regarding mental health issues.
