Health & Wellbeing 2021

There are 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing

If you give these a try, you may feel happier, more positive and able to get more from life.

We will be adding opportunities and pop events throughout the year and we'd love you to join us.

1 Stay Connected !

Wellbeing Pop Up Talks

Duston Parish Council are delighted to continue to work in association with St Luke's Patient Participation Group in 2021. We will be continuing with our monthly pop up sessions virtually for now, with a different focus each month. We have enjoyed the support of consultants from BMI Three Shires and Genesis Homecare speaking on Men's Mental Health, Prostate Cancer, Infertility in Men and Keeping a Healthy Heart. New for 2021 will be talks on Deafness & Tinnitus, Living with Pancreatic Cancer, Joint Pain & Irritable Bowel Syndrome. These are just some of the sessions planned and we'd love you to let us know what you'd like to see.

Check back here or our FB page for the latest confirmed talks.
