The extraordinary events of 2020 have tested the mental health community like never before. We seek a two-minute video from organisations or individuals so that we can share stories of your skills, resilience and hope.
How did you reshape your service or personal approach to adapt and change?  What has worked well for you during this challenging time?
Send us a two-minute video and we’ll share your story with a wide network of people in mental health on social media and at our upcoming conference.
We are all in this together and by sharing our stories, we share our learnings and help to inspire everyone.
Send us your story by 9 October, 2020.
Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Responses will be launched during Mental Health Week (October 10-17 2020).
