Popular award-winning training and events company, Ajuda, have created a brand-new event taking place in May 2020 at Cardiff City Stadium – the Mental Health & Wellbeing Show. The event will take place on Thursday 21st May, which falls during the national campaign of Mental Health Awareness Week (18th to 24th May).
An event of this kind is much-needed not only in Wales but across the UK, as according to Mental Health charity Mind “1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year”. The team at Ajuda want this issue to be addressed and highlighted as much as possible, which inspired them to create this new event.

Company director Dawn Evans says: “Following a number of smaller courses and events around the topic of mental health, we could see there was a clear need for a bigger and more extensive event around mental health and wellbeing in Wales and across the rest of the UK. The team at Ajuda always strive to provide our customers with the training and events that really matter to them, so we decided to create an event to accommodate the rising need for mental health and wellbeing training.”
