3B Against Loneliness Campaign
To help support adults who are suffering from loneliness, 3B Training is teaming up with mental health charity Marmalade Trust to help raise money and awareness of the effects of loneliness, especially during these difficult times.
Why are we raising money for loneliness?
Loneliness is a real issue, especially this year, a year of isolation and being apart from those that we love. Loneliness can affect a person’s mental health in many ways, especially at Christmas. It can be a gateway to other mental health issues such as depression.
We want to raise awareness of the effects of loneliness and help to fund Marmalade Trust’s Christmas Cheer project. The Christmas Cheer project is designed to help bring companionship and joy to those who are alone throughout the festive season. The pandemic has made this even harder for the charity, so we want to support them all that we can.
How are we raising money and awareness for loneliness?
We will be sharing resources and information about loneliness throughout our marketing channels leading up to the course start dates.
Charity Mental Health Awareness Courses
To help raise money, we are also delivering two online Mental Health Awareness courses. We are asking the delegates for a contribution of £30, which we will pass on fully to the charity.
On the course, you will gain knowledge that will help you support those who are affected.
The course will cover areas such as:
- What is mental health?
- An overview of some common mental health issues
- Providing support to others
- A basic understanding of looking after your own wellbeing
- A focused look at loneliness and how it affects people
Please be aware that the course covers some sensitive subjects which some may find difficult.
The course dates are…
Christmas Jumper Day
Additionally, 11th December is Christmas Jumper Day. To raise some extra funds, the 3B team will be donating extra cash and sporting some festive knitwear.
