The awareness of Mental Health feels more poignant than ever during the current challenging and uncertain climate posed by the outbreak of coronavirus earlier this year. The Mental Health Foundation hosted this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week from the 18th-24th May 2020, with its theme focusing around ‘kindness’. Linking closely to this year's theme, the team at CCM were keen to share a kind gesture amongst the local community.

According to Mind.org.uk (2020), statistics currently show that approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK experience mental health problems every year. This statistic alone shows the sheer importance of being kind and offering support to those around you. Our creative and marketing professionals at CCM Group took to the decision to join forces with the charitable organisation, Nottinghamshire MIND. The charity offers advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health issue across the whole of Nottinghamshire. MIND, Nottinghamshire forms part of the wider Mental Health charity, MIND, who provide emotional support to millions of people across the UK each year. (Source: Mind.org.uk)

As part of the partnership and project, we donated our services to Nottinghamshire MIND free of charge, creating a well being and mindfulness activity pack for adults to download, refer to and use in support of Mental Health Awareness week. The downloadable pack includes hints and tips for maintaining a positive mindset such as exercise tools and nutritious recipes, as well as creative activities such as mindfulness colouring sheets and the opportunity to outline goals for the months and years ahead.

Download this pack today and share with your friends, family, colleagues or someone you feel may need some inspiration for maintaining a positive mindset - a little gesture of kindness, goes a very long way.
