Everyone Active has entered into a partnership with mental health charity, Mind.
We aim to raise at least £100,000 to aid the charity in helping to ensure that those with mental health problems do not have to face them alone.
Everyone Active will achieve this by hosting a range of activities and events at its centres across the country over the next 12 months, while Mind itself will be delivering workshops to Everyone Active colleagues. These sessions will help to educate those colleagues on how to deal with mental health issues and support others to do the same.
Here is a summary of what we’ll be doing to support Mind over the coming 12 months:
One in four people will, at some point every year, experience a mental health problem. This partnership between Mind and Everyone Active has been designed to help promote the benefits that activity has on mental health. Regular physical activity has been proven to ease feelings of stress as well as reduce the risk of depression.
A quarter of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That’s an estimated 250,000 Everyone Active customers and colleagues.
Everyone Active has pledged to raise money that can be used to provide a vital lifeline to over 13,000 enquiries on helplines, and help fund the delivery of local projects for up to 600 people. Everyone Active’s partnership will make a tangible difference to thousands across the country and help to ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
Give more people with mental health problems a chance to get support and respect
