It’s a huge challenge to make people understand what it can be like to experience mental illness. But the concepts we’ve come up with are new and effective.”center_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. In an attempt to recruit more donors, the Mental Health Foundation has created two new look mailings, to go to over 100,000 people throughout the UK in March.The mailings illustrate what it is like to have a mental health problem and are both written from the point of view of someone who experienced mental ill-health. One pack contains a paper clip and describes what it feels like to be bent out of shape. The other follows the theme of feeling lost in a crowd.The concepts were devised by staff at the Foundation with the help of creative consultant Pauline Lockier, who said: “a number of people working at the Mental Health Foundation have experienced a mental health problem, and so their insight shone through in the work we did together. The words and images convey honest emotion and really describe what is like to feel depressed, which a number of people out there are likely to identify with.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more
