This year has seen Everyone Active enter into partnership with Mind – the mental health charity – as its new charity partner in 2017. The company aims to raise at least £100,000 to aid the charity in helping to ensure that those with mental health problems don’t have to face the illness alone.
Since the beginning of the partnership in May 2017, Everyone Active has raised:
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 Everyone Active colleagues on how to deal with mental health issues and help the team to support those with mental health issues across the country.
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 year, experience a mental health problem and this partnership between Mind and Everyone Active has been designed to help promote the mental health benefits that activity and exercise has been proven to bring. Regular physical activity has been proven to ease feelings of stress and reduce the risk of depression too.
Everyone Active has pledged to raise money to help provide a vital lifeline to 13,214 enquiries on helplines, and help fund to deliver 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 mental health problems alone.
