Mind Your Mates 2020

(10th September - 10th October 2020)

Every September, York-based businesses and individuals support better mental health in their workplaces & amongst friends, by signing up to take part in the Mind Your Mates campaign running from September 10th - October 10th.

We would love for you to take part in 2020 - read on to find out more.

Mental health – What’s the problem?

The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the nation's mental health, and York Mind want to help you find your way through.

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year - yet many of us find it difficult to know what to say, and how to help someone we know.

The Mind Your Mates campaign aims to raise awareness of mental health issues, and give practical tips for how to help friends or colleagues who may be suffering.

 

York Mind – who are we?IMG_8754

We’re a mental health charity based in Clifton, York.

You may have heard of us before - you may have come to us for support, we might have worked together to deliver training, or perhaps you’ve done some fundraising for us (thank you!).

An important part of our work is to help York-based employers and individuals improve the overall mental health of their employees & those around them, simultaneously raising awareness that our charity is here to help local people when they need support with their mental health.

You can find out more about York Mind’s current services here

What we would like from you / your organisation

If you join the campaign, all that we’d like you to do is:

  • Circulate the weekly newsletters directly with your employees, volunteers or contacts
  • Share our social media content on your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram pages (if you have them)

 

What’s in it for you?

As the world comes to terms with the impact of Coronavirus and the changes to our society, more people need support than ever before.

At least 1 in 4 of your customers, staff and contacts will be affected by mental ill-health.

By visibly supporting better mental health, both amongst your team and with your wider audience, reflects that you're making positive moves to help break down the stigma attached to mental health problems.

With your permission, we will include your / your organisation's name in our Press & Media activity.

You’ll also receive an official Mind Your Mates campaign pack in the post, to help you get started.

 

Is there any cost?

Not. One. Penny.
