CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK
To kick off Children’s Mental Health Week from the 1st February, London charity Supporting Humanity has partnered up with jump rope coach influencer Rush Athletics to tackle mental health in the pandemic.
This year’s theme is ‘express yourself’ and what better way than to learn to express yourself through skipping! So, the charity has come up with a novel idea to help young people and children as well their families to learn a new skill whilst addressing issues they may have yet not know how to deal with.
We all know mental health has rocketed in the pandemic and with the lack of social contact and interaction people are finding it harder and harder to deal with such issues - services have been cut in the lockdown and people are afraid to go out even to hospital appointments for the fear of catching COVID-19.
Skipping is one of the very few sports that people can do solo and gain huge benefits physically and mentally. Young people and children in particular love skipping and there are so many skills and tricks to learn through this activity.
Burial and bereavement
We provide support to families following a bereavement to ease suffering, liaise with hospitals, authorities, registrars and assisting with the admin, organising counselling and working with cemeteries to help dig graves, clean, tidy & maintain grounds.
If you have been affected by Covid-19 and require advice or support, visit our information page or contact us at Supporting Humanity.
Mental Health Project
We believe mental health is as important as physical health. At Supporting Humanity, we provide comfortable, accessible and welcoming mental health support to those suffering bereavement, and work towards breaking mental health stigma.
