Move it for Mental Health

Join #TeamMHUK for our latest virtual event, Move it for Mental Health. Improve your wellbeing and fundraise to help others with theirs too.

This is Nick. Nick is our hero. The money he has raised has helped us to carry on supporting the people that need us most through this difficult time.

Can you help us too?

As a result of the coronavirus, people are experiencing severe challenges to their mental health and wellbeing. The impact of social isolation, health worries, and uncertainty are taking their toll on everyone. Some people are experiencing mental health issues for the first time and many others who had previously existing conditions, are having to cope with exacerbated feelings of anxiety, depression, isolation and helplessness.

Pandemic hair- do’s

Let’s be honest, for a lot of us out there, it has been difficult coming to terms with the fact that you’re not getting your regular hair cut any time soon, or if you are, it will be a DIY job. You could fundraise like Nick did – brave the shave, choose a silly hair cut, or decide to grow a moustache or beard and ask people to donate.

Step by Step

What steps will you take to push yourself today and the day after, and the day after that? Step by Step is a great way of supporting us and your mental wellbeing throughout this crisis.

Hannah decided to walk up and down her stairs at home ten times a day. “It’s a way of keeping some exercise in my routine, not having to leave the house and allows my friends and family to support a charity that is close to my heart.”

You can be like Hannah, or you can use your government advised daily exercise outside to challenge yourself on a daily basis.

Organising raffles

Holding an auction or raffle is a great way of generating funds with minimal costs. However, you must ensure it is legal for it to be as successful as possible!
