Take part in Mind’s Whole School Approach to Mental Health Programme.

By | News | No Comments

Our whole school approach to mental health is designed by young people, parents, the wider school workforce and local Minds. It gives the entire school community the things they say they desperately need and want us to provide. It involves a self-assessment tool for schools and tailored assemblies, workshops, 1-2-1s, information and training for everyone who’s part of school life.

Our approach aims to help young people, parents and the school workforce to cope more easily with the challenges of everyday life, help them to manage stress, and to build supportive relationships with their peers.

Each school following our approach will:

  • promote good mental health and wellbeing to everyone as a right
  • support everyone with a mental health problem
  • find causes of poor mental health and find ways to keep everyone well
  • respect diversity and promote equality
  • and build external partnerships to support children and young people to achieve their very best.

More information on the Whole School Approach can be found here

If you are a school and are wanting to get involved, please email info@heymind.org.uk or call 014822 240200

By | News | No Comments

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £4000 from TESCO as part of their #BagsofHelp scheme.

This will help us to create a positive, therapeutic garden at one of our properties to help the residents to live well and stay well.

By making improvements to the garden, we will now be able to provide a relaxing environment for residents, but also use it to engage with the local community.

Thank you to all the TESCO customers that voted for us in Hull stores.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind to provide housing support in Hull under new contract with the Council

By | News | No Comments

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind has been successful in winning a contract with Hull City Council to support local people with their housing. The new contract includes short term supported accommodation for adults with complex mental health problems as well as supported accommodation for vulnerable young people.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind has long supported people with their housing needs, and this new contract enables us to continue that work, and to find new ways to support people to become more independent and improve their health and wellbeing.

David Smith, Chief Executive at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said, “Housing is fundamental to good mental health, and at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind we are passionate about supporting people to be able to live the lives they want to and to live more independently. This new funding from Hull City Council will enable us to support adults and young people in Hull to have a safe space to call home to help them to recover and move on to live more independently in the future.”

 

Thank you!

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week!

By | News | No Comments

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is stress- with campaigns throughout the week highlighting the importance of talking about and managing stress.
We just wanted to use this as an opportunity to remind you about the campaigns we have planned throughout the week and how you can get involved to promote good mental health.
The campaigns and activities we have planned include:

  • An Exam Stress Campaign – The campaign will highlight the importance of managing stress, particularly stress during exam season. Download free exam tips and resources at www.heymind.org.uk/exam-stress – You can also find a video on our Youtube Channel
  • ‘Tea & Talk’ events- where people will be drinking tea and eating cake, as well as talking about mental health in order to raise money and awareness for us. Local businesses, schools and individuals are getting involved.
  • Stigma Busting Campaign – This new campaign is simple. Wear one of our t-shirts for better mental health. Each t-shirt lists things in life that we’re all happy to talk about, but it also includes mental health. Buy one and spread the message that it’s OK to talk about mental health.  You can get yours at www.heymind.teemill.co.uk
  • ASDA Takeover – We will be fundraising and raising awareness throughout the ASDA stores in Hull. Come along to help us #BreakTheStigma – Dates can be found at www.heymind.org.uk/events
