The Heera Foundation was invited to the the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick on Sunday 25th February 2018 to attend a presentation on the prevention of suicide as well as to promote the work that The Heera Foundation is embarking on. We were given the opportunity to raise awareness of mental health and mindfulness within the heart of our community and able to talk and listen to the sangat. The day was phenomenal and involved presentations from Gurj Toor, Amos Dhami and Papyrus. They shared their personal experiences which were heartfelt by all and had the chance to deepen the knowledge of each sangat member regarding the support existent for those who are most vulnerable.
The day itself was overwhelming and positively received by all. Talking to the Sangat members was extremely touching- so many moving and devastating experiences were shared on the topic of suicide.
The Heera Foundation looks forward to working in partnership with the Guru Nanak Gurdwara and Gurj Toor in order to support families and individuals within our community. Together we can have an impact.
