Men’s Health Week 2020

This week is Men’s Health Week and the focus for 2020 will be ‘Take Action on Covid-19’. The facts are scary: men are twice as likely to die of Covid-19 than their female counterparts. Today we are sharing the links to the Men’s Health Forum campaign which provides a wealth of information on the pandemic: https://shop.menshealthforum.org.uk/collections/mens-health-week.

Over the course of the week, we will be looking at ways that we can support men’s mental health during this uncertain time. On our social networks we will be providing tips on coping with stress, building resilience and other tools to help improve mental health.

Next week is Volunteers Week 2020 – the UK’s biggest annual celebration of volunteering. We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge “Thank You” to all our volunteers without whom we could not deliver the range of services and projects we do. Throughout the week we will be showcasing stories from our volunteers on our social networks highlighting the many ways in which they contribute to the work of our charity. From our Counselling service to our Peer Group Network and from our Volunteer Youth Wellbeing Trainers to our Trustees, volunteering is part of the very fabric of what we do.

Mindful Memo – Kindness at the Heart

For Mental Health Awareness Week, we have created a special kindness-themed issue of our Mindful Memo in which we take a look at how being kind to others and to ourselves is good for our mental and physical health.

We also consider how kindness under lockdown is pervading all aspects of our collective lives from the world of work to the environmental campaign and as a result how society could be re-shaped with kindness at its heart.
