Members of the public are invited to join in celebrations as a programme of events is launched to mark three months of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
The Trust came into being on 1 January 2012 when Suffolk and Norfolk mental health services merged, creating a stronger and more robust organisation.
The aim of the events, which take place between 22 March and 29 March, is to raise awareness of the Trust, showcase its services and to engage with the communities that it provides services for.
The events kick off on 22 March 2012 with an evening of art and drama to commemorate St Clement’s Hospital in Ipswich, the last Victorian asylum in Suffolk.
The following day the Trust will be hosting the regional launch of Triangle of Care, a new national initiative aimed at including service users and their carers more effectively in care planning.
On Saturday 24 March the Trust will be on hand at Chapelfield in Norwich and Tower Ramparts in Ipswich to meet with members of the public, and get talking about mental health.
From 26 to 29 March there will be a series of mental health roadshows at libraries across the two counties - including Wymondham, King’s Lynn, Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, and Felixstowe, Stowmarket, Beccles and Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
On the evening of 29 March, the programme of events will come to a close with a fantastic event for young people with music, poetry and more.
