Simon believes that everyone should have a mental wellbeing tool-kit with resources that you can tap into in order to support your mental health and wellbeing. It's time that the conversation moved on from just encouraging people to talk about mental health to creating more tools, solutions, infrastructure, programmes and everything else required to improve our collective mental wellbeing. 52 Messages is a unique tool created to be a great addition to your mental wellbeing tool-kit. That is why we contribute part of our sales to support Samaritans and Black Minds Matter UK. On top of that, here are some other extra resources and tools that you might find helpful.
Black Minds Matter UK
Black Minds Matter UK understands that for many black people the cases of violence against individuals such as George Floyd in the USA and the many historic incidents in the UK are deeply triggering. Treating mental health must be a priority in the fight for equality and welfare of black people in the UK. Its aim is to link as many black individuals and families in the UK with certified, professional, black practitioners for sessions as soon as we can. They have created a website http://www.blackmindsmatteruk.com so that individuals may choose a practitioner to their liking, keeping a focus on confidentiality and dignity.
