Today marks the start of the Colmore BID’s Wellbeing Fortnight, which will run until Friday 19th February. And with research revealing that more than half of Britons believe their mental health has deteriorated since the start of the Coronavirus crisis, they have had decided to focus these events around mental health support.

The next 2 weeks will see over 20 virtual workshops, webinars and fitness sessions taking place, with the aim of equipping participants with better tools and coping mechanisms to deal with mental health issues, such as anxiety and stress. The BID have shared that this incredibly important initiative will be organised and delivered in collaboration with mental health charity, Living Well UK, and PureGym, based at Snow Hill Plaza.

PureGym will be delivering various online fitness classes – delivered by qualified personal trainers – which aim to help boost stamina and muscular endurance. Living Well UK’s mental health and wellbeing experts will be delivering relaxing and rejuvenating activities to help deal with the stresses that many are facing while working from home during lockdown. Alongside this, there will be sessions around anger management and access to mental health support in the physical and virtual workplace; something which has become even more vital in the ‘new normal’.

Each session costs £3 or you can purchase a pass for £15, giving you access to all events across the two week period. For company’s looking to pay for their staff, corporate packages are available. For further info and to book onto sessions, simply click here
