Motherwell Cheshire CIO Celebrates Mental Health Awareness Week with Community Engagement and Social Media Campaign

As Mental Health Awareness Week (13th-19th May) takes centre stage, Motherwell Cheshire CIO, a leading charity dedicated to supporting women’s mental health, is stepping up its efforts to promote wellbeing within the local community. This year’s theme, “move more for your mental health,” resonates deeply with the organisation’s commitment to holistic approaches to mental wellness.

Throughout the week, Motherwell Cheshire CIO will be hosting mental health pop-ups across the community, offering resources, support, and a listening ear to those in need. These pop-ups serve as safe spaces for individuals to engage in meaningful conversations about mental health and access vital information about available support services.

In addition to community outreach, Motherwell Cheshire CIO is launching a dynamic social media campaign spotlighting the diverse ways its team members incorporate movement into their lives to support mental health. From swimming to boot camps to exercise videos, each staff member shares their personal journey of how physical activity contributes to their mental wellbeing.

For instance, Kate Blakemore, the CEO of Motherwell Cheshire CIO, finds solace and energy in swimming, while Carys Jones, a dedicated counsellor, rejuvenates her mental health at a local boot camp, adding a dose of laughter to her routine. Meanwhile, Georgie, the Inspire Project Coordinator, finds fulfilment and a sense of achievement through exercise videos.

Commenting on the initiative, Kate Blakemore, CEO of Motherwell Cheshire CIO, said, “Mental Health Awareness Week provides a crucial opportunity to spark conversations about mental wellbeing and the importance of incorporating movement into our daily lives. At Motherwell Cheshire CIO, we are committed to supporting our community members in finding holistic approaches to mental wellness, and we’re thrilled to engage with them through both our physical and digital initiatives.”

The charity invites members of the community to join in their efforts by participating in the pop-up events and following their social media channels to gain insights and inspiration on how movement can positively impact mental health.
