Frazzled Cafe
Frazzled Cafe
We are living in a time where a life crammed to the hilt is considered a success story, yet so many of us are struggling with the pressure and are afraid to admit it. Frazzled Cafe is a registered charity founded by Ruby Wax, OBE, in response to this modern epidemic. We run facilitated peer support meetings across the UK where people who are feeling frazzled and overwhelmed by the stresses of modern life can come together to talk openly, connect and feel heard. We provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where it’s ok, to not be ok. In addition to running our fortnightly meetings across the UK for members of the public we have also developed a corporate sponsorship programme designed to help support organisations with their employee wellbeing initiatives alongside their community engagement and CSR programmes. To find out more please visit our website: www.frazzledcafe.org Contact Details: connect@frazzledcafe.org www.frazzledcafe.org/contact Ruby sensed the real need for a place where people could connect with peer-to-peer support to help cope with the overwhelming stresses of modern life and this is what motivated her to create Frazzled Cafe. Frazzled Cafe meetings provide a ‘talk-in’ place where people who are feeling frazzled can meet fortnightly to talk and share their personal stories in a safe, anonymous and non-judgmental environment - a place where it's ok, to not be ok. To be first to hear about new meeting locations or receive invitations to existing meetings please sign up to our mailing list: https://www.frazzledcafe.org/contact/

One Million Lives by Jacobs
One Million Lives by Jacobs
It’s hard to change mental health until we can measure it. It’s time to take matters into our own hands. Mental health is solvable as a challenge if we do it together, we use technology, and we measure results. With One Million Lives, changing a whole societal problem is in the palm of each of our hands. It is time we move beyond awareness...to put our hands up together and, by checking our own mental health, lead the way for others to check theirs too. By regularly completing a check-in, we‘ll be better equipped to understand how we are currently coping and be able to generate real-time, personalized solutions. We‘ll be able to start conversations and get support much earlier. Our goal is to create a ripple effect across the globe, where over one million people are inspired to complete a mental health check-in. We want to break down the barriers that hinder honest conversations about mental health and encourage an open culture of support. We believe that one million lives are in our reach. With you beside us, we can reach so many millions more. If ever a problem was worth coming together to harness our values, our networks and our technology, it is this. And the time is now. One Million Lives check-in tool Our check-in tool has been developed incorporating the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K10), a globally recognized psychological screening tool. The tool allows users to understand their current mental health strengths and challenges and provides suggestions for how to improve mental health based on your own scores. For those who might be feeling well, the tool also assesses early signs and proactive strategies, such as sleep, exercise or social media behaviours. One Million Lives is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any mental health disease or condition. Please seek immediate help from trained medical physicians if you suspect you are suffering from any mental health or other medical condition.
