Mental Health Awareness Week is coming!

By April 10, 2019News

Mental Health Awareness Week is next month. During 13th-19th May we want to raise awareness about mental health issues and to promote better mental health to everyone.

We just wanted to use this as an opportunity to let you know what you can do to promote positive mental health and get involved this Mental Health Awareness Week.

You can get involved by:

  • Hosting a Tea and Talk event – raise money and talk about mental health at the same time. 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. You can request a pack by emailing fundraising@heymind.org.uk or visit www.heymind.org.uk/donate/get-a-pack
  • Getting active on social media – Follow us on social media and share our posts to get the nation talking about mental health. Share on social media @MindHEY tagging #MHAW
  • Volunteering at one of our events – during Mental Health Awareness Week we will be out in the community talking about mental health and raising money so we can help more people. If you could give some of your time, let us know. We’d really appreciate your support.

We hope you will be able to get involved this Mental Health Awareness Week. It really does make all the difference by being open and talking about mental health, it helps to reduce the stigma sometimes associated with mental health problems.

We are often out in the community raising awareness and fundraising for better mental health. Get in touch if you want to get involved on 01482 24000 or email fundraising@heymind.org.uk
