6 May 2015

With the May 2015 elections and Mental Health Awareness Week fast approaching, Find Get Give has launched its #ourmentalhealth campaign.

With the major political parties currently talking about mental health, Find Get Give has detailed the mental health manifesto pledges from each party. The #ourmentalhealth campaign has been launched to raise awareness of these pledges and a petition to help give young people a voice. The pledges are just the start and Find Get Give hopes its petition will help ensure mental health will always be given the focus it needs.  Find Get Give will pass all signatures of the petition to the local parliamentary candidates to ensure they continue working towards the actions detailed in the pledges.

Throughout May, Find Get Give will also be featuring guest blog posts and interviews from young bloggers who are passionate about raising awareness for mental health.

This campaign supports the YMCA Manifesto 2015 which among other things recommends a campaign should be introduced to raise awareness of mental health issues and the available support targeted at young people.
