New Charity Challenge – Mind the Mental Health Charity

mind cymruWe just wanted to share this new charity challenge that’s started this week – Take Off The Tape.

The challenge is: write down the thing that makes you most anxious – on a piece of tape, or sticky note, or even your hand. Take a selfie with it and share it on social media.  Hundreds of people have already shared theirs – lots are really moving and inspiring.

Here’s just one example…

Take a look at hundreds more on – TwitterFacebookInstagram.

It’s all to say we won’t be silenced by anxiety because, shockingly, even younger people think that bottling things up is the right thing to do!

  • Four in five under-35 year olds put on a brave face when they are anxious.
  • A quarter of under-35s feel that showing their emotions is a sign of weakness.

So what do you think? If you don’t normally talk about what worries you, could you Take Off The Tape on something that makes you anxious?

Please only take part if you’re 100% ready to do this – don’t push yourself too hard. But if you’re not feeling up to it, perhaps you could share it with a friend? And if you are ready, thank you! Keeping anxiety inside is a big problem. Together we can help to change that.

We’re Mind, the mental health charity.
We’re here to make sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support.
