Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are happy to be getting involved in the Mind Walk on 3rd July.
The Mind Walk is not a physical fitness challenge but about taking the fight for mental health out in the open. To raise awareness and to raise funds so we can keep fighting for support and respect for all of us with mental health problems.
Walk up to 10km on a route of your choice. Fly the flag for mental health your own way – walk on your own or with family, take in the sunrise or sunset or meet up with friends halfway for a midday picnic. Choose a walking distance that feels achievable and suits your walking ability. We suggest you plan for no more than 10km. Post photos of your walk on social media and show people how proud you are to be part of the fight for mental health. Tag us @MindHEY using #MindWalk.
Every donation you ask for could be a conversation about mental health. Talking about the Mind Walk and why you are taking part could be the cue someone needs to seek information or support for themselves or a loved one. Every conversation and every donation supports the cause and helps keep us here – on the other end of the phone, in your local community and fighting nationally for better services and support.
After all that’s happened over the last year, it’s more important than ever that everyone with a mental health problem can get support and respect. Many of us have experienced problems for the first time and those of us who were already struggling are finding things even harder.
