Since 2019 the team here at Manchester Young Professionals has been raising money to help people with mental health issues across the Greater Manchester region. We’re delighted to say that we have raised £4000 for the fantastic charity Manchester Mind! We did this by donating £1 for every ticket sold to one of our networking events and it’s great to see it add up to such a significant amount of money.
We have teamed up with great people at Manchester Mind in various different ways over the last year or so. We’ve helped host several volunteering initiatives including a Christmas gift wrapping session last December! As well as events we also hosted a number of mental health awareness seminars where we sat with young professionals and discussed the importance of talking about mental health and making it as a normal conversation topic as any, no matter what industry they are in.
We’ve loved working with Manchester Mind over these last few months. Getting to see how they help people across this great city has been an incredible experience and one the team at Manchester Young Professionals will never forget or take for granted. We’re honoured to play a part in helping raise awareness and money to protect people in vulnerable mental states across Greater Manchester.
With our partnership coming to an end, we decided to host something particularly special. Between 6-7pm on Monday 20th July we’ll be hosting a virtual Mindfulness Session. During the one hour session, Ruth Rosselson from Manchester Mind will teach you all about mindfulness to give you a better understanding, how it can help you through stress, anxiety and how you can experience mindfulness through meditation.
