Together In Action
Heads Together is tackling stigma by getting people talking about mental health, working with our Charity Partners and Founding Partners, as well as a range of organisations and groups that have committed to support the campaign.
Marathon week was incredible – we hope you were as excited as we were! Although the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon is over, there are still lots of ways that you can get involved:
- Change your Facebook profile picture to include a Heads Together headband to get the world talking about mental health
- Have you tried out the headband on the Heads Together Snapchat filter? (it’s got a twist so try it with a friend)
- Even the Heads Together hashtags have got headbands! Go to twitter and use either #HeadsTogether, #oktosay or #TeamHeadsTogether to see
Don’t use social media that much? That’s not a problem – you can download & print off a headband here
The Heads Together #ThereForMe series showcases stories of support. Each story gives insight into the mental health challenges they faced and celebrates particularly helpful support they received.
Our latest video in the #ThereForMe series is Jamie and Helen’s story. When Jamie lost his wife to cancer, his best friend Helen’s support helped him cope with his sudden loss. On 11/12/13 Jamie created ‘Nic’s Legacy’.
