£4000 to create a new therapeutic garden

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!

*NEW* Wear one of our stigma-busting t-shirts for better mental health

By | News, Press Releases | No Comments

Today is an exciting day at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind as we launch our brand-new mental health awareness T shirt campaign!

For this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we want you to join with us to send the message that it’s ok to talk about mental health. Being more open about it means that people are more likely to seek help if they are struggling.

It’s vitally important that talking about mental health becomes the norm. We’re all happy to chat about the everyday things like movies, sport and our mates, but what about mental health?

Help us to break the stigma by buying one of our campaign t-shirts and you’ll be helping to spread the word while raising money for Hull and East Yorkshire Mind at the same time as every T shirt purchased includes a donation to Hull and East Yorkshire Mind. Let’s wear them with pride and end the stigma surrounding mental health.”

The campaign is being launched today so that people can buy the T shirts in time to wear them during Mental Health Awareness Week (14th – 20th May)

The simple, but powerful t shirts can be purchased via the campaign’s online shop with a portion of the profits going directly to the charity itself.

It’s back! Host your own Tea & Talk event for better mental health

By | News | No Comments

Today we are re-launching our ‘Tea & Talk’ campaign for Mental Health Awareness week which will take place 14th – 20th May 2018.

The idea behind the fundraising campaign is simple, it’s good to talk; it’s even better with a cuppa.

We are encouraging people to host a tea and talk event, to raise money and talk about mental health. Hosting an event will help us to challenge the stigma, and to raise vital funds so that we can continue to support more people living in our area.

Why not host your own tea and talk event for better mental health? Some ideas for your tea and talk event could be:

  • Hosting a bake sale
  • A coffee morning
  • Afternoon tea

We hope that all the events will start lots of conversations about mental health. It’s good for all of us to talk about mental health, and so this is a good opportunity to start those conversations.
