Mental Health Awareness Week

From 10th - 16th May it's Mental Health Awareness Week, aimed at making us all talk more about mental health. 

Fosse 107 is supporting Mental Health Awareness Week with thanks to Hinckley & Rugby Building Society, and the charity Lamp. 

Lamp has and always will be a champion for mental health. We are an independent mental health charity founded in 1989. Our service is independent, confidential, trusted and non-judgemental. We provide free community mental health advocacy for people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland as well as Carers Advocacy for people in these areas. Our aim is for you to feel valued, listened to and more able to cope. 

All week we're taking one minute out of our normal schedule to hear personal stories and get some tips and advice for better mental health:

Lamp's Around the World 5k Challenge 

Mental Health Awareness week provides the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the benefits physical activity can have on your mental health.

Lamp want to encourage you to get active during mental health week to better your mental health and increase your wellbeing by taking part in a 5k activity of your choice. Walking, running or cycling may be the most common forms of exercise but feel free to be creative. Swimming, rowing or even a simple dog walk may be your thing; or how about combine three activities together over the week for a Lamp Triathlon or doing an activity in fancy dress

To get involved is simple

Step One

  • Decide on an 5k activity (Relaxed, Challenging, Fun or Creative – anything you want to get involved with)

Step Two

Step Three 

  • Start a fundraising campaign or simply DONATE to Lamp to support those in need of mental health support – FUNDRAISE
  • Purchase the Lamp 5K T-Shirt with a donation of the purchase going directly to Lamp – BUY HERE

Step Four

  • Get your household, family or support bubble involved and get active! Share and promote the importance of physical exercise leading to better mental health. Don’t forget to tag Lamp and use those hashtags.
