This week, Mid and North East Essex Mind are celebrating #SmallCharityWeek (taking place from 18th – 23rd June).
As a small charity providing mental health support across the county from Colchester to Chelmsford and Braintree to Clacton, we really need your help to spread the word about our organisation to ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
This week, we are asking you to:
- Follow us on social media, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @mnessexmind – please give us a ‘like’ here and there and maybe even share some of our posts; we often give advice, tips and helpful links about mental health and wellbeing and you never know, it may reach someone in your audience who could really do with some extra support or information.
- Share these numbers and links with your friends, family and online followers – Health in Mind (referrals for North Essex) 0300 330 5455, Mid Essex IAPT 01376 308704, Samaritans 116 123, Childline 0800 1111, our ‘Out of Hours/Crisis Support’ page and our ‘Chat with Charlie’ online messaging support service for students of the University of Essex.
- You can make a donation to our organisation – no matter how small the donation is, it really does go a long way to helping us provide support for those who need it. Find out how to donate here. As a little thank you from us, if you donate online during this week, we’ll send you a free Mid and North East Essex Mind pin badge in the post!
- Sign up to our online e-newsletter to keep in touch and up to date on all our latest news – simply type in your details in the purple box on the left and click ‘send’.
- You can also help to get us noticed under the #ILoveSmallCharities Hashtag on social media! Here’s how: Take a photo of yourself holding up a poster that reads: “I love Mid and North East Essex Mind because (why you love us)”. Then simply post it to either Twitter, Instagram or the ‘Small Charity Week’ Facebook page. Make sure you include the #ILoveSmallCharities hashtag when you post your photograph. ❤
As a small charity, we rely on volunteers to help keep our services running – if you would like to find out more about how you can get involved, we have some fantastic volunteering opportunities available, including in our ‘Chat with Charlie’ support service. Find out more here.
Donations from community and corporate fundraising also makes up a big part of our funding and we couldn’t continue with our work if it wasn’t for our generous supporters – please get in touch or take a look here to see how you can get involved.
