White Rose marks Mental Health Awareness Week

White Rose Shopping Centre is celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week’s 2024 theme of Movement with a wellbeing walk on Wednesday (15 May 2024).

The event has been arranged with the centre’s long-established group of mall walkers as well as a number of White Rose brands including JD, Footasylum, M&S, McDonald’s, Wetherspoon, Superdrug, Flying Tiger, Lush, and Office.

Taking place from 9am, before stores open for the day, the wellness walk invites the centre team and guests to start their day with a social activity, with White Rose’s eight on-site Mental Health First Aiders joining in to share advice and increase awareness of their presence to support staff.

White Rose’s mall walkers will be leading the event. Now in their 21st year of regular meet-ups at White Rose, the mall walkers visit every day at 9am to make friends and exercise in a safe, warm environment.

Steven Foster, Centre Director at White Rose, said:

“It’s important for our teams to know that mental health support is available to them, and our wellbeing walk is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the certified Mental Health First Aiders we have at White Rose.

“We’re delighted to have so many centre brands joining us for the event, as well as so many familiar faces in our group of regular mall walkers – a fantastic scheme for increasing physical health and inviting people to stay connected.”

Guests who wish to join the mall walking sessions can contact whiterose@landsec.com.
