MasterMind in Harrow 2018: school teams wanted!

Could you pitch your wits against challenging quick-fire questions and raise money for Mind in Harrow's work in the local community?

MasterMind in Harrow will be taking place once again in February 2018 and this time we want teams of year 9 pupils to compete.

Teams need to include ten students who will be in year 9 in the 2017/18 academic year. Your entrance fee will be £1200 sponsorship money – £120 per team member. Team members can ask family and friends to sponsor them to represent their school (that's just 12 people sponsoring each pupil £10) or your school may prefer to hold a mufti day or another fundraising activity – the choice is yours! With parental permission, online sponsorship can be set up via our JustGiving page.

Your school will feature in online coverage by leading local newspaper, The Harrow Times, leading up to and following the competition. They will also crown the winning team and award prizes for the best and most innovative charity fundraising.

If you are a teacher or pupil whose school is interested in taking part, please contact Marilyn on 020 8515 7860 or email m.norman@mindinharrow.org.uk.

Head for Work Mindful Workplace Training

Our Head for Work Team successfully delivered Mindful Workplace Training to Prospects in July 2017.  The aim of the training was to increase awareness and understanding of mental health, recognise signs & symptoms, how it may affect individuals, staff and clients and how to provide support.

After the workshop, participants’ feedback showed:

  • 65% increase in confidence to support people with mental health problems at work
  • 64% increase in participants agreeing that they felt better informed about mental health issues in their role at work
  • 33% increase in confidence to seek support in the workplace with emotional and mental health related problems

At Head for Work we deliver specialist, tailored training, which is employer focused.  Organisations can choose the date and location for training and we provide User led Trainers who are accredited by Middlesex University.  

If you are an employer and you want to retain and make the most of your staff, it helps to know that one in four people will experience mental distress as some point in their lives.  This means you and your staff, your customers, your clients. We can help organisations support their responsibilities towards workforce mental health and have a positive impact on the wellbeing of employees.

If you are interested in finding out more about our training and the services we can offer, please contact Hanlie Burger on 0208 515 7861 or e-mail h.burger@mindinharrow.org.uk. You can also download our Head for Work leaflet for more information.
