At Start Within we believe that every day is a mental health awareness day!
However, World Mental Health Day (WMHD) provides us with one special day each year to shine the brightest possible spotlight on the biggest issues surrounding our mental health.
The theme for WMHD 2021 is Mental Health in an Unequal World. We are using this opportunity to highlight the inequality in accessing mental health support services, to give a voice to those that continue to feel marginalised and to identify positive strategies to help everybody receive the support that they need, regardless of background or situation.
After all, the pandemic has shown us that we are all in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat.
The only way we can hope to understand each other and achieve real, positive change is to come together and harness the power of the TEAM!
Time - provide a safe space for conversation and truly make the time to listen.
Empathy - connect at the emotional level to genuinely understand the challenges we face.
Allyship - stand together in solidarity and address the inequalities we encounter head-on.
Motivation - attack the root causes of inequality, inspire change and role model positive behaviour.
Each principle of our TEAM model will be explored in our bespoke WMHD 2021 workshops, which can be tailored to the specific needs of your organisation. We don’t believe in the ‘one size fits all’ approach; we facilitate the discussion around your challenges and encourage participation in a safe, non-judgmental and enjoyable setting!
As with every Start Within session, every participant will be equipped with top tips, resources and recommendations, with the opportunity to interact as much or as little as you feel comfortable with!
