‘Creating Hope through Action’ Regional Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Campaign 2022

25th August 2022

The last few years have been difficult and we realise more than ever the importance of connecting with each other. The community and voluntary sector are already well established as local champions, regularly demonstrating very practical ways that people can take action, by implementing the Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing.

We’d love you to support the campaign! Here are a few suggestions on how you can get involved:

  • Set up a ‘Camerado’ public living room.  We have teamed up with the Camerado Movement, a worldwide organisation which supports people to set up a public living room in their local community.  This is a comfortable place where people look out for each other and connect human to human.  Camerados will provide a fully funded pack and guidance to help you set up your Public Living Room.  See the attached flyer, download the Camerados Picture Book or contact yvonne@camerados.org for more information.
  • Organise a Coffee and Connect event to promote the campaign – a really simple way to get together with others and connect.  We have developed a guide to help you plan your event and some printable resources to get you started. You can find these here.
  • Organise another type of event to help people connect and demonstrate how people could take action, to create hope.

You can contact your local Health Trust Lead to receive materials which may be available to support your event – just complete the attached registration form and return to your local Lead at Clare.Flynn@belfasttrust.hscni.net.  We look forward to working with you and let’s spread a message of hope in our communities this Autumn.

If you are organising an event and posting information on your social media channels, please use this year’s campaign tag so we can share and promote your event. #HopeThroughAction22
