Norwich City support EFL and Mind's 'Do One Thing' initiative

5 October 2020

Norwich City is delighted to show its support for the EFL and Mind's 'Do One Thing' campaign, in the build up to World Mental Health Day on Saturday, October 10.

Mind’s ‘Do One Thing’ campaign aims to inspire people to make one small change or take one action to look after their mental health. As part of the campaign, EFL clubs will play their part and ‘do one thing’ to say thank you to someone deserving within their local communities.

From Monday, October 5, Norwich City will be sharing activity and advice across our channels throughout the next week along with a host of other clubs.

Supporters can get involved in the campaign by sharing their ‘one thing’ of advice or activities across social media.

With Mind’s latest research revealing that more than 60% of adults and over two thirds of young people (68%) felt their mental health deteriorated during the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, encouraging conversations around our own mental health and that of others has never been more important.

EFL Chief Executive, David Baldwin, said: “It is fantastic to see EFL Clubs come together to once again mark World Mental Health Day and support our charity partner, Mind.

“Looking after our mental health and that of others has always been vital but as we all feel the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, it has never been more important to continue to raise awareness and encourage conversations around the subject.

“The various activity taking place this week is a small example of how our Clubs and their respective Club Community Organisations are at the forefront of tackling some of society’s biggest issues. They play a vital role in improving the lives of so many people within communities across the country.

“I’d encourage everyone to get involved and ‘do one thing’ this week - one small action may have a much bigger impact on those around you and help someone in need.”
