Go Purple 2022


How to Go Purple?

As Action Mental Health marks World Mental Health Day on the October 10th 2022, we are asking schools, businesses, community groups, individual and families to help us Go Purple for mental health.

Your support will also help raise vital funds to support our mental health services for local people.

As well as raising funds we want you to engage with: the Five Ways to Well being, a set of scientifically proven steps that have been shown to improve personal well being, namely:

  1. Connect
  2. Be Active
  3. Keep learning
  4. Give
  5. Take notice

Go Purple ideas:                                                                                          

  • Wear something purple – or go all out and have a purple themed day, and ask guests to donate to take part!
  • Walk a purple mile – take the opportunity to walk a mile a day for a week, wearing something purple and ask friends, family or colleagues to sponsor you.  Walking and exercise has been proven to greatly improve feelings of anxiety and stress.
  • Have a purple tea break – instead of your regular teabreak, why not have a purple themed break, and ask participants for a donation. 
  • Doing my/our own thing – of course you can choose to do whatever suits you or your group.

Go Purple Merchandise:  

We have a full catalogue of merchandise upon request, including unisex T-shirts, running vests, wrist bands, pens, thunder sticks, flags, pin badges and bunting.  Outdoor banners are also available upon request. If you are a school, business or community group and are working with large numbers of Go Purple participants please let us know well in advance so we can accommodate you by emailing:  [email protected]
