World Mental Health Day with Mind Allies
Mind Allies have several activities planned for Mental Health Day, kicking off at 8.30, at King’s Cross Station. Partnering up with Flowerbx, and assisted by our lovely volunteers, we are handing out beautiful fresh roses at King’s Cross Station.
This will take place at roughly 8.30am – 10.30am, with the colour of the roses being significant - green for mental health awareness, yellow for suicide prevention and white for peace, love and understanding.
Come along, meet the team, have a chat and share your story.
We will also be giving away full subscriptions for the Calm phone app. Based on the principles of Mindfulness, the app provides coping strategies, helpful tips and positive affirmations for sufferers of poor mental health.
Mind Allies also have loads of fantastic competitions and give-aways planned, with prizes including vouchers for freebies and activities.
Why not come along, meet the team, have a chat and share your story …
