This is a continuation of yesterday’s blog, where I was talking about my Mental Health Resource Hub, and how it will be working in the community in the draft stages. I would like to add to this, as I have many more ideas in my mind for helping people in the community, as well as describe the other parts of The Mental Health Resource Hub Network.
With the whole community involved, this should help with the stigma on people with mental health problems, as they will be able to demonstrate how they are just regular people too.
The website will be full of information, resources, and helpline numbers for people with mental health problems. This will include news on mental health, technology and mental health, and medicine and mental health where I will also be doing the same on the YouTube Channel. This is where I will be talking about the history of psychology, history of Mental illness, treatments, how mental illnesses are diagnosed, medications, book reviews, etc.
At the same time, I would like to empower people to find the help they need but also to encourage people who would like to help others too, to start their own hub. I will also be providing local information, legal, medical, charities, and governmental information to benefit from becoming a hub though never in a forceful way.
Meaning more people will understand mental health problems, more advocating, and more pressure on the government as they would see the results and see that these projects need more money.
As I said before in part one, I do not know if this will actually work. However, there is no harm in trying projects to help people in your community with mental health problems.
There is also the chance to raise money for charities, and local charities with events taking place in the local community, where people with mental health problems can get involved. Whether that will be by art, or cooking, or anything creative, it would be good to have the community stand together to help one another and charities.
With the online part of my Mental Health Resource Hub, I plan to do monthly streams to raise money for mental health charities, as well as try to do things for local charities as well. Though the logistics of that are not very clear at this very moment, I will be making cards and gifts to sell for charities, as well as a way to raise money for The Mental Health Resource Hub.
Sorry this is short, I cannot think of anymore to write in this part, however when I do I will be posting a part 3.
Once I have edited these into a main document, I hope to post the whole document into a blog post.
I hope this is not too confusing or boring, I am hoping this is going to go towards a business plan, so I can make the Mental health hub happen.
