For Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, we want you to join us in shouting that mental health matters.
Take action now and pledge to #BeThereForBradford.
You can #BeThereForBradford in one of two ways – by being there for yourself, or by being there for others.
#BeThereForYourself by practicing self-care and checking in on your mental health.
Trying out some simple self-care techniques can play a big part in protecting your mental health. One of the best ways to keep your mind healthy and to improve feelings of connectedness is by finding ways to connect with nature every day.
Be there for others and #CarryTheBurden this May to help our vital work.
The #CarryTheBurden Challenge aims to raise awareness of mental health difficulties, as well as raising vital funds for us so that we can continue to support people with mental health difficulties.
Carry any item for 24 hours to represent the invisible burden that people with mental health difficulties carry with them every single day. Your support will help to raise awareness and funds for us, your local mental health charity, so we can help people who are struggling across the Bradford district and Craven.
