Nature and the Environment
Thank you for considering to sign up to get involved during Mental Health Awareness Week which will take place during 10-16th May 2021 – it’s great to have you on-board!
This year, Mental Health Awareness Week aims to bring people together through the benefits of getting outside and exploring nature and the environment. It will also celebrate nature and the positive connection it has on our mental health and wellbeing. The week is an opportunity to open our eyes to the power of nature, as the evidence is clear that access to nature is crucial to our mental health. Millions of people have rediscovered this during the recent lockdowns.
By signing up below, a FREE Mental Health Awareness Week pack will be sent to your email.
#PauseER – Take a break from social media for better mental health
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are happy to be working alongside East Riding of Yorkshire Council on the brand new #PauseER campaign – an initiative for local people.
The concept is simple. Throughout May, we are encouraging people to consciously take a break from social media, their phones and other devices for 2 hours per day. This is to help local people reconnect with life and re-learn how to relax, switch off and socialise with one another – without having any distractions or living life through a screen. The campaign also aims to share real stories from real people about their experiences having a break from social media.
If you feel that you spend a lot of time on social media, potentially feeling tired, low mood and generally a bit fed up – why not give it ago and see how you feel after.

Let us know if you intend to fundraise for us, and your inspiration and we’ll send you some FREE lavender seeds!
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind know that Lavender has long been used in aromatherapy, and it is said to promote calmness, aid restful sleep, and reduce stress.
Let us know if you have any fundraising plans, what your inspiration is and if you need any support from us – we’ll then send you some FREE lavender seeds! We’re with you every step of the way.
We hope that by growing these seeds, you will feel connected to nature and the environment, and improve your feelings of mental wellbeing.
