Liverpool charity launches first ever Merseyside Mental Health Week

Liverpool mental health organisation, Imagine Independence has teamed up with Hough Bellis Communications to launch the first ever Merseyside Mental Health Week.

Imagine Independence is bringing together people and organisations from across the region to support thousands of people experiencing poor mental health and to raise awareness of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental wellbeing in the city region.

Taking place from 2nd November to 6th November, Merseyside Mental Health Week will deliver a week-long programme of online events and community activities.

This includes working with local people on Imagine’s Building Up Stronger project which is trialling a new approach to providing mental health services, improving digital skills and reducing loneliness and isolation.

The week is backed by The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, Liverpool City Council, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, Professional Liverpool, The Federation of Small Business, Knowsley Chamber of Commerce, LFC Foundation and Everton in the Community.

Hough Bellis has worked with Imagine since 2018, overseeing the organisation’s major rebrand, together with the development of an effective social media presence.

Margaret Hanson, Chief Executive of Imagine Independence, said: “Merseyside Mental Health Week couldn’t have come at a more important time for our region as we move into increased lockdown restrictions. We hope that through Merseyside Mental Health Week we will encourage more people to seek out help.”

Bobbie Hough, Managing Director at Hough Bellis added: “We’re proud to be supporting Imagine Independence in launching this campaign. It fits perfectly with our vision of working with great people to deliver great work on projects that improve people’s lives.”
