Wirral public get ‘hands on’ for Mental Health Awareness Week

Wirral residents turned out in their numbers to make a community quilt in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW).



MHAW runs in May every year and helps to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues. This year's theme was 'mindfulness'.

A community quilt was the brainchild of Wirral Community NHS Trust's Livewell team, who promote creativity as a great way of being mindful.

A number of local residents and shoppers visited the team at Cherry Tree Shopping Centre in Wallasey on Wednesday 13 May and showed their creative sides by crafting their own, individual squares.
Each square signified and celebrated the importance of community, through the symbols of hands and hearts, and the bringing together of colours, shapes and textures.

A range of materials and fabrics were used, and each square was then sewn together to make one larger, vibrant and colourful quilt.

The quilt is now on display at the Cherry Tree Shopping Centre and will remain there for the public to view over the next couple of weeks.
