Local mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind has joined forces with Hull City Ladies to raise awareness of mental health.
The partnership, which launches on Wednesday 5th May 2021 will see Hull City Ladies add Hull and East Yorkshire Mind’s logo onto their Girls Elite Academy training wear.
Together, both organisations will help to raise awareness through a series of awareness days such as Mental Health Awareness Week, World Suicide Prevention Day as well as World Mental Health Day.
Hull City Ladies will also be hoping to raise much needed funds for Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and have already raised £100 through a charity Grand National sweepstake. All money raised will help Hull and East Yorkshire Mind to support more people across Hull and East Yorkshire with their mental health.
Founded in 1976, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are a local charity supporting over 5500 every year with their mental health. Affiliated to the National Mind network, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind has an ambitious vision for the future in which they will not give up until everybody experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.
Hull City Ladies are helping the community lead a better and healthier life and are improving people’s physical and mental well-being by working with key organisations and charities. The Tigresses are highlighting different awareness days to create more awareness around important issues, including campaigns and key events.
Dan Warren, Director of Development at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said:
“We are very excited about the partnership with Hull City Ladies and the ability it will give us to engage with players, coaches and the whole community within the club.
Local partnerships like this really help us to reduce stigma around mental health and wellbeing and by working together, we can raise vital funds to allow us to deliver more services to local people.”
Danny Johnson, Managing Director at Hull City Ladies said:
“I am delighted for the club to be working alongside Hull and East Yorkshire Mind to further promote mental health.
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are a fantastic charity who are working hard to create more awareness and support for people within Hull and East Yorkshire. We are helping by having Hull and East Yorkshire Mind on our Girls Elite Academy training wear and we will be working in partnership on numerous fundraising and awareness initiatives to further support the charity.
We are motivated to make a positive difference in our region and it is important to link in with local organisations who share similar values to us.”
