A news interview with The MindEd Trust Chair, Steve Mallen from last night. As we move through the current crisis, more than a million people have completed the training and awareness programme created by the Zero Suicide Alliance which was co-founded by Steve. The Covid pandemic has galvanised our society around wellbeing, mental health and suicide prevention to an extent never before seen. Our kindness and understanding on these issues will be critical in weathering the current storm and facing the difficult challenges of the future. Please share.
The current crisis has highlighted the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing. Co-Founded by The MindEd Trust as a legacy to Edward Mallen, who was lost to suicide in 2015, the Zero Suicide Alliance suicide awareness and training resource has now reached more than 1 million people. We are doing all we can to support those in distress both now and in the future.
As the current crisis continues, The MindEd Trust continues to strive for better mental health for young people. The Trust is pleased to introduce "A Blueprint for Mental Health Provision in Schools" recognising and realising the incredible and dedicated efforts of Tom Hughes of Cambridgeshire County Council, supported by Danielle Robyn of Deearo Marketing.
The Covid-19 crisis requires a concerted, national effort to protect the wellbeing of those suffering from trauma and mental illness. MindEd Trust Chairman, Steve Mallen, representing the Zero Suicide Alliance, is pleased to have been invited to participate in this specially convened group.
In these challenging times, it can be hard to moderate our emotions and look after our psychological wellbeing. The Government and the NHS have accredited a Thrive app to help us all navigate both the current crisis and life in general. Look after yourselves everyone. Be good, be clever, be safe and be well.
