Tigers Events partner with local mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind
Local mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind have partnered with the official catering and events partner of the MKM Stadium, Tigers Events, to support better mental health in Hull and East Yorkshire.
Tigers Events, based at the MKM Stadium, offer a variety of events including, weddings, Christmas parties, conferences, parties and much more. It is hoped that the partnership will help to inform guests about the services available locally, and ‘normalise’ the conversation about mental health so it is more widely discussed. Money raised throughout the partnership will enable Hull and East Yorkshire Mind to support more people locally.
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, founded in 1976, have been supporting local people for over 45 years. The charity offer counselling, group support, bereavement support and more tailored support for those bereaved or affected by suicide. More recently, the charity also run a 24/7 Information Line and are also managing the Mental Health Support Line to those in crisis and or distress.
The charity are currently supporting over 6000 every year with their mental health – with services available for adults and young people.
Katie West, Sales Manager at Tigers Events said:
“Mental health is something close to our hearts at Tigers Events. I think after the last couple of years, we all know, and can relate to someone, who has found the last few years especially tough, and it’s important we are there for each other.
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind offer some fantastic services and we look forward to learning more about what they do, and how we can all better look after our own mental health, as the partnership unfolds over the next year.”
Dan Warren, Director of Development at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said:
“It’s great to be working with Tigers Events on this new and exciting partnership. 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. By working together, we can promote positive mental health on and off the pitch, and ensure that nobody in our local area has to face a mental health problem alone.”
