Mental Health Week Campaign
Updated: Jun 2, 2020
Announcing our Mental Health Week Campaign in partnership with Wage Noir - #SomeoneHears
In light of Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, we have partnered with Wage Noir, deciding to dedicate this week to sharing some moving and inspirational stories centred around raising awareness for mental health with the best use of our platforms combined. Each day throughout the week will be dedicated to a different story, told by someone who has battled with their mental health. A myriad of stories will be shared, with particular recognition to how struggles have been overcome. Be sure to keep up to date on all of our social media pages to hear some brave and deeply personal accounts by those who have courageously battled with their mental health, and are now sharing their stories, in order to help others.
The #someonehears campaign is bigger than our brands, and goes beyond our industries; however, with this in mind, raising awareness within the business industries in particular is a goal of ours also. Mental health is something that affects so many of us, every day, around the world. It is important for us to use our brands to raise awareness and be a voice. By speaking openly about mental health struggles, we begin to deconstruct stereotypes, aid in recovery, and most importantly, break down the stigma of something that affects us all. It is important to remember that, whoever you are, wherever you are, you are not alone. As two businesses come together in light of many meaningful goals, such as demonstrating how brands can project their voice within their industry and beyond, and raising awareness for an important campaign, it is with great pride that us at Outsquare and Wage Noir present this campaign. We've combined two meaningful brands to collaboratively create awareness around one of the most demanding topics within our generation. More individuals have to speak about each other's mental health.
If you or someone you know are affected by any of the topics spoken about, or issues raised, please do not hesitate to seek help. There are many services available, for example:
The Samaritans- Call 116 123 (it’s free)
Shout Crisis Text Line- Text ‘shout’ to 85258
Talk to someone you trust
Talk to your GP
These are just some of the options, from a huge variety of things you can do if you need support. Do not hesitate to use these resources, because always remember you are not alone.
