Keep on Track is The Tank Museum’s first wellbeing event in support of World Mental Health Day. 

The event is programmed to provide information of day-to-day techniques and useful contacts for individuals to help build their own mental resilience and for supporting those around them. 

With different talks and workshops each day, the Friday programme will have a more military focus. Both the military and general public are welcome on both days.

Over the two days, Keep on Track will feature: 
  • Exhibiting stands promoting local organisations and their services within the Mental Health and wellbeing sectors - open to Tank Museum general admission ticket holders AND wellbeing event ticket holders
  • Guest talks and workshops focused on lived experiences and wellbeing techniques - £5 Wellbeing Event ticket required for access, includes lunch, limited capacity

The Tank Museum is pleased to offer complimentary admission to the Workshops for serving members of the armed forces and to all Royal Armoured Corps Regimental Association members

Workshops

David O'Mahoney - Motivational Speaker
Mahoney is speaking both days about his journey with mental health, alongside his fellow soldier who saved his life. Just months after losing a large portion of his skull from a brain injury, cavalry soldier O'Mahoney opened and closed the London Paralympic games. 

As well as opening the event, he is also doing a gratitude and daily reflection workshop on Saturday. Read his story here

Mindfulness Workshop
Patrick Burgess from the National Army HQ Mental Health Team will speak both days on mindfulness, giving you coping strategies for the future. 

Mindfulness can be defined as paying attention to the present moment, allowing you to establish a sense of peace, rather than responding on auto-pilot. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing.

Nutrition Workshop 
Friday's talk will be from Dan from The Calibre Gym who often works with veterans, and Saturday's from Bessie Brumble, a specialist in Nutrition and Mental Health Dietetics. Both will be speaking on the effects of a healthy diet and lifestyle on mental wellbeing and tips on how to achieve this.

Getting Back into Work Workshop
Sarah Everand from The Samee Project and Disability Confident will be speaking both days on how to remain in work or get back into it, after taking time out due to illness including mental illness.
