Mental Health Awareness Week 2020…what a week! Ordinarily many of our teams would be out and about in our local communities talking to people and promoting mental health awareness, this year we were faced with the challenge of promoting whilst unable to complete outreach activities.
Our staff, volunteers and service users did not disappoint! They embraced the challenge and have promoted #kindnessmatters within their staff teams, frontline service buildings, from home with the help of their families, producing videos and images for social media and our Children and Young People’s team have created a webpage to showcase all of their brilliant creations, it’s not too late to take a look!
Our Wellbeing for Warwickshire teams have also created a wall of kindness, you take a look at that here and even download your own to print and complete with colleagues, friends or family.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all our staff, service users and supporters for your brilliantly inspired efforts this Mental Health Awareness Week, you have all been awesome!
We’ll leave you now at the end of Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 with a quote from Kay our Chief Operating Officer.
I believe that kindness improves our quality of life in the workplace as well as in the community,it brings people together as we’ve seen over the last few months. Doing good for others feels good. Showing kindness to others is just as rewarding as receiving it from someone else.Also never under estimate the effect and lasting impact of a random act of kindness-it will stay in the recipient’s memory for a long time and generate a “feel good factor” each time it is remembered.Kay St Clair
