Whole Hour Pledge


This World Mental Health Day, we want people to take a #WHOLEHOUR for themselves.

To celebrate World Mental Health Day 2019  we want you to take a Whole Hour on October 10th for your mental wellbeing!

Each year an estimate of 20% of children and young people worldwide experience mental health difficulties. YMCA and WHOLE are on a mission to tackle the stigmas and stereotypes surrounding mental health difficulties to ensure no young person ever feels isolated, marginalised, discriminated or alone due to their mental health.

Whether it is doing something active and healthy, creative and fun, mindful and thoughtful, or restful and relaxing, there are a variety of things you can do to help yourself feel good.

Pledge a #WHOLEHOUR  here

Whatever you decide to do on #WORLDMENTALHEALTHDAY2019, we want to hear from you!

We will be featuring individuals who participate in pledging a #WHOLEHOUR on our official social media platforms, specifically Facebook, Instagram and Twitter . Be sure to use the hashtag #IAMWHOLE and #WHOLEHOUR if you want to be featured!

To provide some ideas of things you can do with your #WHOLEHOUR, we have produced a range of packs to download below.
