AN event is being staged in Keighley to promote positive mental health.

The Toucan Day takes place at Central Hall, in Alice Street, on Saturday (May 18), from 10am to 4pm.

Behind the venture is the Missing Peace Wellbeing + Support community group.

It provides support to people across Keighley and Craven, who are struggling with their mental health.

A range of organisations will be represented at the event, offering information about their services and the help they provide.

Guest speakers will talk about their own experiences of poor mental health, and positive ways of improving your life.

There will also be various other activities, catering for people of all ages.

Admission is free.

“The day is all about promoting positive mental health and wellbeing,” said a spokesman for Missing Peace Wellbeing + Support.

“By bringing our community together, we can share our experiences and help support others.

“We can highlight the uniqueness of everybody and hopefully reduce the stigma of mental health difficulties.

“Lots of us have been in various states of hopelessness and low self-esteem but have managed to bounce back and make positive changes, even when we felt we couldn’t or didn’t deserve it.

“So please remember, ‘if we can, you too can’!”
