The 5 minutes in your day well spent
Having been appointed to the Board of Penumbra Mental Health♾ back in July, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting behind this incredible charity and getting to know other board members and its talented senior management team.
As a pioneering mental health charity, Penumbra has taken huge steps in being leading edge, current and progressive over recent years, transforming culture and attitudes in promoting a positive and unique journey for people experiencing mental ill health. The third sector and the talented people who work there have real passion, grit and sparkle which is pretty special.
The global pandemic has shown us the value of many things; if there is a positive to come of it, it has been the further interest in and concern for mental health and our country’s specific Covid-19 response plans. Penumbra leads with purpose, is creative, positive, ambitious and has huge heart; undeterred by seemingly impossible social, economic and political climates.
Take just five minutes out your day and reach out to that person who’s in your thoughts today
World Mental Health Day was just over a month ago, we should remember to prioritise mental every day. Regularly seeking out support, and acknowledging the importance of connection and talking is important generally for our mental health, whatever it is we are facing. Please think about connecting with others who can support you and think about how you can support others. Take just five minutes out your day and reach out to that person who’s in your thoughts today.
Thank you to Elaine Dunlop, LeighAnne Jordan and Mairi Hill at Virgin Money for the continued encouragement and support to step into something a little bit different but that makes a big difference!
Huge thanks to Ros for joining our trustee team. We’re so glad your colleagues at Virgin Money are so supportive of you, too.
