On the 10th of October Project7 joined thousands across the country to raise awareness for Mental Health. Just like physical health, our mental health is something we all need to take care of. With mental health problems affecting one in four people we believed raising awareness on this day was extremely important for the wellbeing of everyone in our team.
The agenda for the day involved a ‘Walk & Talk’, where each person was given two questions. One question linking to statistics in Mental Health and one question that allowed people to get to know each other better. The walk commenced with a feeling of openness and discussion to promote and encourage communication within our team.
Reflection on the day was positive. With suicide and depression rising to alarming levels in today’s society, a day dedicated to the mindfulness of how those feel around us is something we feel is essential.
