We are so excited to launch our mental health packs across Northern Ireland’s hospitals, schools, youth groups and churches.
The heart behind these Mental Health Packs is to be the bridge between the need of the individual on that journey of mental ill-health & the help required to meet that need.
Through a QR code located within the packs, we have created a space on a bespoke website www.madeformoreni.co.uk/support , where individuals can get access to multiple options for help. Examples of these being:
- A video series called stories of Hope with people sharing from lived experiences on some of the following:
- Obsessive compulsive disorder OCD
- Eating disorder
- Panic Attacks
- Self Harm
2. Access to HELP:
A range of specialist organisations listed as options for someone needing help and care in time of need.
This ranges from counselling to suicide, drugs & alcohol help to depression as well as general help such as childlike and crisis help such as Barnardos.
3. Mindfulness activities:
A range of activities & techniques to calm your nervous system. Mindfulness is a type of activity in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
We also have podcasts, Spotify playlists & letters of hope written by those through lived experiences.
These packs are being distributed to hospitals, schools, churches & youth organisations throughout Northern Ireland.
We would love the wider GoSOW network to pray they get into the hands that need them & for lives to be changed through the content and bridges created into professional help.
If you would like to bless a local hospital, school, church or youth group with these packs, please donate via the give option on the GoSOW. Each pack is priced at £12.
