2nd Anniversary
  • Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health is celebrating its 2nd anniversary! By the kind invitation of the Hon. Baroness Uddin, the event was held at the House of Lords to celebrate the achievements of the charity so far. With the help of sponsors, professionals in mental health and other fields, and our volunteers the charity has held many events to help with mental health and wellness in Croydon. It was great to get everyone together to recognise our progress and celebrate. We heard amazing speeches from Hon. Baroness Uddin, Steve Reed MP, Sarah Jones MP, Cllr Toni Letts OBE, Cllr Tony Newman, Cllr Humayun Kabir, Dr Geraldine Strathdee OBE, Konan, National Lottery Community Fund representative Kim Debling, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s representative Stephen Waring, Cllr Manju Shahul-Hameed and the sponsor Ananda Kota. As always we are very grateful for everyone who has helped us in our activities. There are many more events being planned so look forward to the 3rd year for Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundations for Mental Health.

Dementia awareness
  • A partnership working oF Croydon University Hospital and Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health to organise #DementiaAwareness session at the hospital delivered by Caroline Walker from Alzheimer’s Society. Great turnout from the staff and the community.‬

Laughter Yoga
  • This month’s Laughter yoga involved a number of themes. Doing a practice like this, especially in groups helps others interact and has the same effect as general laughter. Since our bodies can’t distinguish between real and fake laughter, anything that has an impact to make this change can have a positive impact.

EID Celebation Feed Homeless
  • Eid with Homeless people organised by Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health at West Croydon Methodist Church

Feeding the Homeless
  • ‪Feeding the homeless by @MSHFoundations on first Tuesday of June. It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of @BLBroadGreen

Mental Health awareness- awaiting the confirmation
  • Mental Health Awareness session organised by Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation For Mental Health at Yeha Noha Cafe was very informative and stimulated useful discussions on mental health. There is a misconception that ‘mental health’ implies a disease, when in fact we all have mental health and discussing it can help find ways to maintain or improve our wellness. Participants received links to further information from Mind and other mental health charities. We are grateful to Yeha Noha cafe for hosting the session.

Laughter Yoga
  • ‪Laughter Yoga last week by Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health was, once again, great fun. It’s lovely to get out and relieve stress with friends and maybe even make some new friends along the way. 8 year old Shashankh, the youngest volunteer of the charity took the photos. Once again thanks to Monika Saravanan for the support. We hope to see you all next time at St John The Evangelist church.

Mental Health Awareness
  • This week’s free mental health awareness session was, again, fascinating. We think it’s so useful for everyone to have an understanding of how mental health issues manifest themselves and would therefore urge as many of you as possible to come to the next session. Additionally, a lot of information is available online via websites such as the NHS and Mind. Thanks to SLaM NHS Recovery College for the continued support and Monika Saravanan for organising the event.

Feeding the Homeless

Mental Health Awareness
  • Mental health awareness session organised by Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health At South Norwood Library was an enlightening experience for everyone. It’s important to have some knowledge of how to deal with a mental health issue, including how to support a loved one or notice the first signs of a problem. Many thanks to Rachel and a special thanks to Sheela for planning the session with the support of Barani to make it successful.

Zumba
  • A brilliant Zumba session this week at St Paul’s Church! Everyone involved had so much fun - participants, volunteers and the instructor. Zumba definitely helps with stress relief as it is a combination of two things which are proven to boost happiness (music and exercise!). Many thanks to Beena Ali for her contribution and to everyone who came along - we hope to see you again next time.
