Communities coming together to support mental wellbeing
Our lives are full of challenges which can sometimes feel difficult to cope with. If you have the right support around you, the ups and downs of life can be more manageable. Mind and Co-op are working to empower communities, and individuals, to provide support when things feel like they are getting too much.
We are also working alongside our partners SAMH in Scotland and Inspire in Northern Ireland, to help people develop the skills needed to effectively support both their own and others’ mental health and wellbeing in their communities.
Together, we will speak out through national campaigning and influencing to make a real difference.
Our partnership aims to raise £6m by engaging staff, members and customers in a range of national and local fundraising. This will enable us to deliver innovative new services to support better mental wellbeing in communities through our local Mind network, and across the UK with our charity partners Inspire and SAMH.
Working with one of the UK's biggest retailers will help us reach more people than ever across all four nations, and create lasting change in our communities for better mental health.
