OS employees, who have raised over £160,000 for previous charity partners in the last eight years alone, voted to support Mental Health UK and their programmes that enable and empower people to understand and manage their mental health.
There are approximately 7.5 million individuals in the UK living with a diagnosed mental health condition and it is estimated that one in four people experienced a mental health problem every year pre-pandemic.
Mental Health UK are the only mental health charity to work UK-wide and their programmes facilitate people understanding mental health, financial problems, resilience in young people, loneliness and isolation and help people navigate through the primary care healthcare system.
The two-year charity partnership will see OS and Mental Health UK create an inclusive calendar of events, from volunteering opportunities to fundraising challenges, that all OS employees can get involved in to raise money and awareness.
Aside from fundraising, OS will provide geospatial data and expertise to equip Mental Health UK with the tools and know-how required to achieve their goal of connecting physical activity to improving mental health, as well as highlighting the numerous benefits that getting outside can bring.
