Moonpig Challenge Brits to Find Their Voice During Mental Health Awareness Week

  • Moonpig is offering 25,000 free postcards to help people reach out to loved ones with a caring message
  • They have also launched a new ‘Just to Say’ postcard range to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, that forms part of the free postcards initiative

A week-long awareness campaign by Moonpig launched yesterday (20th May), to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, encouraging Brits to find their voice, to reach out to people who may be struggling, and to ‘see the hidden message’ when it comes to communicating with friends and family.

Moonpig are offering 25,000 free postcards for Mental Health Awareness Week – 5,000 per day for five days – to encourage people to say the things that matter. Using the APPFREEPC voucher code on the app, people will be able to send a free postcard to anyone they feel need support. The code will be live 20-24th May, but the offer is limited to one free postcard per person.* The free postcards are available on the Moonpig app on this link here.

Sarah-Jane Porter, Head of Cards at Moonpig commented: “They say a face can tell a thousand stories, but when we can’t see our loved ones in person it’s much harder to know what is going on with them, let alone in their heads. Many of us have grown quite used to video calls by now, but expressing how you feel can sometimes be difficult. This is why we wanted to help people feel more comfortable to express the things that matter, and reach out to each other during Mental Health Awareness Week with 5,000 free postcards for five days on the Moonpig app. “

“Written messages allow us to pour our emotions onto paper without any pressure. It’s easier to express feelings, concerns and care – things that many might feel uncomfortable saying out loud in person.”

“It’s important for us at Moonpig to help people stay connected with the ones they love, even when they can’t see them.”

Mental health charity Mind has some tips on how to open up to loved ones that can provide some guidance for all of us during these unprecedented times:

It can be normal to worry about telling someone how you feel but trying to deal with things on your own can make things feel worse. Talking to someone you trust can help you to:

  • feel like you’re not alone
  • feel supported by the people around you
  • find treatment and support options to help with how you’re feeling
  • stop things from getting worse
  • find out that other people have been through similar things.

If you’re worried about telling someone how you feel, it can help to feel prepared for the conversation. Here are some tips from Mind you could think about:

  • Find a way that feels right for you – sometimes you might want to talk face-to-face but if this feels too difficult you could try talking on the phone, sending a text or email, writing a letter or drawing how you feel.
  • Find a good time – the time may never feel perfect, but it can help if it’s when they can give you their full attention and it’s in a place where you feel comfortable.
  • Practise what you want to say – this could be in your head or with a friend. You could even try writing things down.

You can also find more information and support on Coronavirus and your mental health on Mind’s website, here.
