We are calling on all local businesses to join us and take part in our 2020 Challenge.
Any business, large or small, can take part in our 2020 challenge and pledge to raise £2,020 during 2020.
Be one of our ‘ten’! If Mid and North East Essex Mind could get ten companies to take on the challenge, that would be £20,200 raised for our local mental health services.
Each year, 1 in 3 of the UK workforce have been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime. That’s including depression, anxiety and PTSD*.
Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost and costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year**.
Show your support and solidarity for those experiencing mental health difficulties by taking part in the 2020 Challenge.
Julie Arthur, Corporate Fundraising Manager, says “The demand for mental health services is growing and we need to provide more specialist services in the local area in order to support more local people. Some of your employees, friends and family will have experienced, or will experience in the future, a mental health issue and in supporting us you are in turn supporting your workforce.”
Sign your business up today by calling Julie on 01206 764600 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
