On World Mental Health Day, it was a pleasure to teach yoga and meditation at the Prince William of Gloucester Army Barracks in Grantham. Army personnel joined classes in-person and on-line as part of an organised event focussing on health and well-being.
World Mental Health Day is an opportunity to raise awareness, collectively, about preventive mental-health interventions.
A spokesperson for the World Health Organisation stated: “We envision a world in which mental health is valued, promoted, and protected; where everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy mental health and to exercise their human rights; and where everyone can access the mental-health care they need.”
Yoga and meditation, for many, are an important part of a well-being ‘maintenance programme’ for a healthy and happy life!
