Tomorrow marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, and we're helping to raise awareness and funds for MIND, the Mental Health charity, with some damn good cake!
Tomorrow marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. This is a biggie for the Teacup group, we're big believers in standing together against mental illnesses, as most of us have been touched by in it one way or another.
It isn't an easy conversation to have always, but usually, the desire to overcome stigma and make real measurable change in peoples lives outweighs that lack of ease.
So that's what we're up to this week!
We want to prompt you to try to have a conversation about Mental Health. But lets not talk only about the damage it can cause, let's talk about how we can lift up the people around us, how we've overcome it, or are working to overcome it. Let's be kind, be patient, be listeners as well as talkers. Talk to your friends, your parents, that chap you see at the bus stop sometimes... talk to us if you want to. And talk to MIND, the charity we're raising funds for this week, because they're really incredible and so knowledgable and caring.
Pop in for a slice of our specially baked MIND cake, or take a slice home, all next week and in doing that you'll be making a donation to MIND, which will help them to continue the work they do.
And don't forget to share your cake with the wider world! Get it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #MHAW2017 to spread awareness far and wide.
