Norfolk and Waveney Mind

We’re excited to announce that this year Method Marketing has chosen Norfolk and Waveney Mind as its charity of the year.

At Method Marketing, supporting our local community and safeguarding mental health are causes that are close to our hearts. This year, we are therefore delighted to announce that we will be partnering with Norfolk and Waveney Mind, which does fantastic work in the local area to provide mental health services.

Poor mental health and the low provision of services is a growing crisis in the UK. In Norfolk, 1 in 7 people live with depression or anxiety, while across the UK, 1 in 3 GP visits are associated with a mental health issue. In the year 2018/2019, there were 135 hospital admissions in Norfolk alone for mental health issues.

Mind’s work is therefore crucial to supporting people with mental health issues and helping them to live a meaningful life.

Their services include 1:1 talking therapies, mental health training and residential care and support programmes. Young people aged 14-25, adults and carers are all able to access mental health support through Mind.

The Norfolk and Waveney branch exists to directly support people in this area, providing tailored services to those in need.

Lucy Mowatt, Founder of Method Marketing, commented: “Mental health issues have, or will, affect so many of us at some point in our lives, which is why the work of Norfolk and Waveney Mind is so important. By choosing them as our charity of the year we hope to raise both awareness and funds so that they can continue their great work.”

Our fundraising plans

To kick-start our fundraising, Lucy will be taking part in Run Norwich on 17th July 2022. If you would like to show her some support, please head over to her JustGiving page and leave a donation today.

In September, the Method Marketing team will also be taking part in the Walking to Prevent Suicide Challenge, a walking relay through Norfolk and Waveney. We will be walking the Lowestoft to Southwold stretch, completing a total of 13 miles in the process.

And then, in October, we will be putting our trivia knowledge to the test in Norfolk and Waveney Mind’s Annual Quiz Night.

Of course there will be more to come, so be sure to follow us on social media to find out more!
