Men's mental health month
"In November, we focus on men's mental health. This is a campaign for anyone who identifies as male or a man and whose mental health may be impacted by pressures associated with this."
"Curry & Chaat is our new national fundraising event and we would love for you to take part."
"The aim of Curry & Chaat is simple, get together with friends, enjoy a great curry and raise money for the Mental Health Foundation. We know that maintaining positive relationships in our life has a significant benefit on our mental health. It’s also important to make clear that Curry & Chaat is not just for men, we want as many men and women as possible holding a Curry & Chaat, taking positive steps to improve their mental health."
