I set Mental Health Competitions up with the hope of raising awareness for Mental Health. Mental disorders can come in different forms including depression, bipolar, anxiety, personality, psychotic, eating, substance abuse or trauma-related disorders.
Mental Health Competitions will also give people an opportunity to win prizes that can help with their wellbeing. There will be a number of different prizes available from Spa days to help recharge, retail vouchers for the retail therapy lovers, gym memberships to help exercise the body and mind, game consoles to help de-stress, tattoo sessions to feel real again, holidays to help relax whether it’s for couples or families and much more!
Throughout the year we will run certain competitions where all profits will go to a UK Mental Health Charity. In addition to this, 10% of all company profits will be donated annually to a UK Mental Health Charity. These charities work tirelessly to support and raise awareness all year round for Mental Health. One of these Charities will always remain close to my heart as I wouldn’t be here today had it not been thanks to a helpline Volunteer, Alan.
There is such a horrible stigma around mental ill health and what it means to be a sufferer of mental disorders. I hope that by sharing my story that it will help others to understand what someone may have gone through before having the courage to ask for support and to help put an end to the stigma around Mental Health.
I know everyone deals with mental disorders in different ways, so we’d love to hear your ideas for possible prizes so feel free to share them with us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
