Mindapples For Mental Health
UK social group shares skills to promote mental health.
Mindapples is a public campaign in the UK inspired by the idea that mental health is just as vital as physical health. While there are many initiatives to help people quit smoking, overcome obesity and fight heart disease, there are fewer campaigns that specifically target mental well-being.
Just like crusades that advocate daily exercise, healthy eating and rest, Mindapples focuses on daily practices for mental health. “What’s the 5-a-day for your mind?” asks the Mindapples team.
The original 5-a-day campaign told us to look after our bodies by eating five fruit and veg a day, but our minds are a little bit more complicated. So we don’t tell people what to do. Instead, we want to know what works for you. We’re asking everyone to pick their own “mindapples” and share them with the world, and using the power of the internet to build a thriving community of people supporting each other to make their minds healthier. And by asking a question which everyone can answer, we hope to open up a new, positive dialogue about mental health which everyone can join in, and make mentally healthy living something aspirational and enjoyable for all.
