The power of kindness: Mental health awareness week

Mental Health Awareness Week

This year Mental Health Awareness Week will highlight the acts of kindness, big or small, that people are doing at this time.

More than ever, being kind and showing kindness is particularly important to our mental health and wellbeing. We made our commitment earlier this year to encourage conversation about mental health and to reduce stigma by inviting visitors to take a seat in our Chatty Chairs. A safe space where conversation is encouraged.

Due to the lockdown, we can’t invite you to take a seat at our Chatty Chairs in our centre but we do want to hear what has been happening in our community.

Read on to find out how you can get involved.

The Power Of Kindness

A simple gesture of kindness can be the difference between a good day and bad day.

Do you know a local person who has helped a neighbour, collected prescriptions, helped somebody in isolation feel connected by making telephone calls, delivered a daily newspaper, or perhaps stitched some PPE or has supported a charity in some way during the crisis?

To say thanks, we want you to nominate someone who has been kind in some way by sharing their story with us over on our Facebook or Instagram for a chance for them to win a £25 intu gift card.

If you need support, please contact Tyneside and Northumberland Mind.

Terms and conditions apply.
