Writing to say hello this winter
One of the 5 ways to Wellbeing is ‘Connect’. Connecting with others has a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing and is a great way to remind ourselves that we’re important and valued by others.
With the rise of the internet, everything has increasingly been moving online, including the way we communicate with each other. Now more than ever, we have the ability to keep connected with those around us. Sadly, now more than ever people are reporting that they feel more lonely and lack real connections.
Health in Mind’s campaign #WritingToSayHello
Health in Mind wants everyone to use the simple act of sending a postcard to build connections and remind others that you are there and are thinking about them.
It’s moving conversations away from sending a quick text without much thought, to one in which we slow down and take the time to connect with each other in a meaningful way. The campaign has building relationships and connections at its heart.
