We Collaborate

Mental health is just as important as physical health, and we’re working hard to get that message out there.

We raise awareness, provide tools and knowledge to help proactive recovery and challenge the stigma that prevents people reaching out for help. We work closely with medical practitioners, employers, schools and companies to help them understand depression, what it means and how they can support those affected by it.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

We Want to Make a Difference

Collaboration is two-way: it involves a shared understanding and a mutual desire to make a difference.

And that’s the crux of it for us. We’re interested in collaborating with people who want to make meaningful change. No token gestures, we’re all in.

Why?

Although there have been societal shifts, we’re still a really long way off from having parity of esteem. That matters because it means that there is a discrepancy between the care and support those with mental ill health might receive when compared with those with physical ill health. It matters because people are taking their lives and it matters, because it’s a people thing; we all have mental health. Each and every one of us. And none of us are immune to mental ill health.

"No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." - Robin Williams

Some of our projects

The Blurt Peer Project

We’re working hard at the moment to bring The Blurt Peer Project to the world. We’re particularly excited about this as it will see us collaborating with more schools to ignite peer-led conversations surrounding mental health.

The Self-Care Project

We worked with our publisher, Orion Spring, to bring our book The Self-Care Project to you. We’ve been talking about self-care for a good few years now, and so, it was fantastic to have the opportunity to capture our thoughts into one place.

BBC x Blurt

We featured in BBC’s Like Minds series, talking about why mornings can be so difficult for those of us who have depression.

Facebook x Blurt

We met with Facebook‘s Safety Team to discuss the use of their groups; safety, facilitation, and providing positive and meaningful support.

Women for Women x Refinery29

We were delighted to collaborate with Women for Women UK and Refinery29 in a Facebook Live panel discussion: How do you stay mentally healthy?

Reed in Partnership x Blurt

We’re piloting a project with Reed in Partnership; we curated some bespoke BuddyBoxes to be given to those with a history of mental ill health who are being supported back into work.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
