From today, billboards across the country will feature England Captain and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in support of our #DoGoodFeelGood campaign. This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is anxiety, and we’re highlighting the benefits of volunteering on your own wellbeing.
In a survey of more than 1,000 Shout Volunteers, one in five told us that being a volunteer helped them to feel less anxious, more than half (51%) said it improved their wellbeing and 84% said it gave them a sense of accomplishment.
The billboards encourage people across the country to help others and #DoGoodFeelGood by signing up to become a Shout Volunteer.
The collaboration follows a number of previous initiatives the Harry Kane Foundation has created on behalf of Shout, as it works towards its long-term goal of transforming a generation’s thinking about mental health.
As part of its support, the Harry Kane Foundation is also generously helping to fund the Shout service.
