For Mental Health Month in October we encouraged staff to engage in activities that have a positive impact on their daily wellbeing, through a Mental Health Bingo Challenge.
The theme for Mental Health Month was: Tune In. ‘Tuning in’ means being present, being aware of what’s happening within you, and in the world around you. We encouraged staff to tune in to the daily things we can all do to support our mental wellbeing.
Our Mental Health Bingo cards provided staff with daily ideas to improve their mental health, such as Turn off all screens for two hours, Try a new recipe, Challenge your negative thoughts and dance around to your favourite playlist.
To play, we asked staff to complete one line of activities in any direction, (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) to get BINGO and can enter the Mental Health Bingo Competition by submitting photos of them doing their Bingo activities.
Here’s just a few of the lovely photos we received from staff during October.
