We are pleased to announce our official partnership with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind!
An independent charity governed by a group of local trustees, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is affiliated to the Mind network made up of over 130 organisations across England and Wales delivering services, campaigning and giving a voice to people with mental health problems, their families, carers and community.
Their mission is to work with partners to intervene as early as possible, providing advice and support to empower and give hope to anyone experiencing a mental health problem, campaigning locally to improve services and reduce stigma and discrimination.
After welcoming HEY Mind into Connexin Cares, we have been able to raise almost £1700 to support their mission and help work towards a future where everyone experiencing a mental health problem can get the support and respect they deserve.
We are delighted to be working with HEY Mind, not only within the Connexin Cares scheme but also internally to support the mental health of all Connexin employees.
Our most recent Team Lunch welcomed David Gray, an Employment Support Worker from HEY Mind, who spoke to the team about his own mental health struggles and coping with workplace stress.
David has been working with us for a few months, supporting the team via one-to-ones both within working hours and outside of working hours. He has been a great ally and support to individuals as well as the full company and we cannot be more grateful!
