#Speakyourmind Campaign

As part of Mental Heath Awareness Week we are encouraging you to #SpeakYourMind

This is a Mental Health Awareness Week with a difference. Many of us are worried about coronavirus and how it will affect us and those we love. #speakyourmind and reach out to someone who needs a friend with a positive message, or share with them your own tips for coping to make sure they don't have to face this pandemic alone.

Based on National Mind's recent survey with over 10,000 people, we know that one of the most common coping strategies many of us are using during these times is connecting with friends and family online. And for Mental Health Awareness week, it's more important than ever that we use our own experiences to help each other.

For those of us with existing mental health problems, we may never have felt more lonely or isolated. We believe that nobody should have to face a mental health problem alone.

We can get through this. Together. One day at a time.
