Schools’ Challenge on World Mental Health Day




10 October 2017 is World Mental Health Day and Action Mental Health is calling on schools to take part in the 5 Ways to Well-being Challenge.


Beginning on 10 October we’re challenging schools to adopt 5 simple steps to help maintain and improve well-being.

  1. Connect – Get together and organise a ‘wear purple to school day’ to support Action Mental Health and celebrate World Mental Health Day!
  2. Be active – Organise an activity like a sponsored walk or run in the school grounds and raise funds for Action Mental Health.
  3. Give – Bring a donation to take part. AMH relies on support from the local community so our MensSana project can provide vital mental health awareness programmes in schools like yours!
  4. Take Notice – Stop and think how you can get involved this World Mental Health Day. AMH can help support your fundraising efforts – to find out more or to register your school please contact our fundraising team by emailing or by calling 028 9182 8494.
  5. Keep Learning – AMH MensSana can deliver a range of educational programmes in your school to support all ages in the area of mental health and emotional well-being, get in touch to find out more!
