Our partnership with Royal Mail has allowed us to expand our support groups to reach more people living with poor mental health. We have worked with them to raise awareness and tackle the stigma of mental health.
Awarded to support communities
across the UK
5 new support groups
to open by 2020
Royal Mail created a short film to support its work in mental health, “Everyday People” in collaboration with their three charity partners, Action for Children, Mind and Mental Health UK. The film, which aims to show that mental health problems might be ‘closer to home than you think’, has been viewed more than 86,000 times.
The support group funded by Royal Mail opened in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, an area where this support was not previously available. The support group met for the first time in November 2017, with 17 attendees from a wide range of ages, cultures and experiences.
Royal Mail chose mental health as the cause for its charity partnership from 2017 to 2020. After a staff vote, Royal Mail chose Mental Health UK as one of its partners and gave us £50,000 to fund our community support groups. Our groups provide a safe place for people with mental health problems and carers to meet and support each other.
Mental health is a leading cause of illness amongst our people. It is a growing issue for society as a whole. We want to use our unique brand, reach and presence across the UK to tackle the stigma of mental health amongst colleagues, customers and communities.
