Unmasked Mental Health wish to open additional Community Hubs throughout Kirklees, so that everybody has access to support when they are struggling to prevent them getting into dangerous predicaments.
Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.
Unmasked currently have six Community hubs, five within Calderdale and one in Bury. It is important that we can open more community hubs so that people have safe space to go on a weekly basis where we can work as a community to combat loneliness and isolation, with the aim to improve the populations mental health, wellbeing and lower the staggering rates of crisis in the United Kingdom. We therefore require the funding to create at least three hubs in Hudderfield, Batley and Dewsbury.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
With 1 in 4 people globally suffering from mental health difficulties from anxiety and depression to bipolar and schizophrenia. It has become imperative that there are numerous tasks yet to be done in getting the message across to removing the discrimination and bias associated with the label thus, conscientizing people and encouraging sufferers to come forward and speak to others about their struggles knowing the government alone cannot curb the raging war against all persons with mental health conditions. It is however our belief that with dedication and likeminded people to help in this mission, it is an achievable goal.
Steps to get it done:
We would also be interested to know if you know of any specific locations (e.g. community centre, church etc.) where the Community Hubs could run from, within Kirklees, on a Thursday evening between 19:00 and 21:00.
